ABOUT SEA SUNDAY

On Sea Sunday churches all over the world come together to remember seafarers and pray for them, their families and those who support them. The Mission to Seafarers needs your prayers and support for all merchant crews and their families on Sea Sunday 2015, to continue our vital work for those in need.

“The Mission to Seafarers works tirelessly to provide help and hope to seafarers in distress in 71 countries worldwide. In 260 ports, from Southampton to Sydney, every day the world’s 1.5 million crew men and women look out for the Mission’s ‘Flying Angel’ flag. The Mission is universally trusted to be of service for everyday problems and in maritime emergencies. Please help the Mission by holding a Sea Sunday service this year.”

- The Revd Richard Coles, BBC Radio 4 presenter

The theme of this year’s Sea Sunday is shipwreck. These materials focus on the work The Mission to Seafarers has done on the recent shipwrecks around the UK coast line. Thankfully, emergency response to shipwreck forms only part of the work that the Mission does. Our centres provide a home away from home where seafarers can relax and use internet and phone facilities to contact their loved ones, while our ship-visitors provide on-board practical and emotional support to crews.

Can you please note, for 2015 we are sending all our supporting churches a pack of materials for your Sea Sunday service. You do not need to order specific numbers for each type of material. If you run out of anything, please do email us for more
supplies to be sent to you:
