​Churches around the world hold Sea Sunday services in aid of seafarers

10 Jul, 2017

Churches around the world held Sea Sunday services in aid of international maritime charity Sailors’ Society yesterday (Sunday 9 July).

This year, more than 600 services are set to take place for Sailors’ Society celebrating Sea Sunday.

Sailors’ Society aims to transform the lives of seafarers and their families at home, in port and at sea through the delivery of chaplaincy, education and the relief of poverty and distress.

The charity works internationally to provide practical, emotional and spiritual welfare support to the world’s 1.6m seafarers, regardless of background or faith and has a presence in 91 global ports, with wider projects and services covering 27 countries including Belgium, India and the Philippines.

Sailors’ Society’s CEO, Stuart Rivers, said, “We are really grateful to everyone who has held a Sea Sunday service in aid of Sailors’ Society this year and highlighted the challenges seafarers face on a daily basis.

“We all rely upon seafarers and services held globally show the world’s seafarers that although they may be far away, they are not forgotten.”
