Churches around the world to celebrate seafarers on Sea Sunday

25 May, 2017

Churches from around the world will take part in Sea Sunday services for Sailors’ Society this year on July 9.

Each year, the Christian maritime charity, asks congregations to remember and pray for the world’s 1.6 million seafarers and give thanks for their lives and work.

Stuart Rivers, Sailors’ Society’s CEO, said: “Look around you; more than 90 per cent of everything we own comes by sea – your cars, your phone, even your cup of coffee.

“These are brought by seafarers who risk extreme loneliness, storms and even piracy.

“We all rely on seafarers, and holding a Sea Sunday service for Sailors’ Society is a great way of recognising them.”

The Southampton-based charity has created a variety of resources for churches, which it has made available free to download at www.seasundayhero.org.

Included in the resource pack is a sermon by Dr Hugh Osgood, Sunday school resources and a video of Psalm 107 read by Chine McDonald, Bishop of Bristol, the Rt Revd Mike Hill and Krish Kandiah.

If you would like receive a Sea Sunday pack, please call Leila Hyde on 02380 515903.
