Andrew Wright
Secretary General at Mission to Seafarers


I have been the Secretary General here since 2013, overseeing the charity and providing overall strategy and direction.

Before joining the Mission, I worked at the Royal National Mission to Deep Sea Fishermen, as Senior Chaplain and Director of Operations. I’ve also worked as a curator in one of Liverpool’s most deprived estates, served parishes in Carlisle and Wigan, and been a Chaplain of St Edward’s school in Oxford.
