Bromsgrove and Droitwich churches should 'remember seafarers' with special service

Craig Gibbons 16th May, 2018

THE OLDEST maritime welfare charity is urging churches across Bromsgrove, Rubery and Droitwich to remember the world’s seafarers in a special service.

Congregations from around the world will take part in Sea Sunday services on July 8 in aid of the Sailors’ Society.

Each year the 200-year-old charity asks churchgoers to pray and give thanks for the world’s 1.6million seafarers.

Stuart Rivers, chief executive of the Sailors’ Society, said: “Whether they know it or not, the people of Malvern rely upon seafarers.

“More than 90 per cent of everything we own comes by sea – our clothes, phones, cars – even the bricks that make up our homes.

“All of these goods are brought into the country by seafarers who risk extreme loneliness, dangerous storms and even piracy.

“Holding a Sea Sunday service for Sailors’ Society is a fantastic way of recognising the amazing work seafarers do.”

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

The resource pack includes a sermon outline, PowerPoint, videos, posters and Sunday School lesson plan and activities.
