Mercy Ships, an international charity which operates the world’s largest charity hospital ship, the Africa Mercy, is bringing some festive cheer with its popular annual Christmas Carol Service at the Southwark Cathedral on Wednesday 5th December at 7.30pm.

Mercy Ships operates the world’s largest charity hospital ship, the Africa Mercy, to provide free healthcare services to those living in developing countries, namely in Africa, where the services of professional medical staff are most needed.

The floating hospital is currently docked in the port of Cotonou, Benin, for a ten-month field service during which the international team of medical volunteers will perform 1,700 life-changing surgeries on-board and treat over 8,000 people at a land-based dental clinic.

The service will be a joyful and festive occasion and Mercy Ships invites attendee to send the names of their loved ones to be printed in the Order of Service. This is a unique way to remember those who are no longer with us at a special time of year. Singing at the Service will be the Southwark Cathedral Choir. Mulled wine and delicious mince pies will also be served at the end of the Service.

Lea Milligan, Executive Director of Mercy Ships UK, said: “The Service is open to all friends and supporters of the charity and is free to attend, although we are grateful for any donations given on the night that will help Mercy Ships to continue its life-changing work. Come and join us for a fantastic evening of prayer and celebration!”
