Mission to Seafarers Sea Sunday celebrations to be broadcast online

The Mission to Seafarers annual Sea Sunday celebrations are to be broadcast online to connect seafarers around the world during the Covid-19 pandemic

Sea Sunday on 12 July is the culmination of Seafarers Awareness Week which starts today 6 July. This year’s service will be broadcast on the Mission to Seafarers Youtube channel and will feature chaplains and seafarers from across the globe, as well as message from the charity’s President, HRH The Princess Royal.

The Revd Canon Andrew Wright, secretary general, The Mission to Seafarers, said: “This Sea Sunday is special. We are enabling all seafarers, and those connected to the community, to come together as an extended Mission to Seafarers’ family.

“From London to Lagos and Manila to Melbourne, we believe there is power when we come together as a global community. We are united in gratitude, especially in recognition of the heroic work of seafarers, and in hope for the future.”

The service will feature Lloyd’s Choir and Hadrian Primary School Choir from South Shields, both of which have previously performed at celebrations hosted by the Mission.

“Throughout this challenging time, our chaplains and port centres across the world have been adapting their usual activities to safely meet the needs of seafarers. Connecting this Sea Sunday to everyone around the globe provides a great opportunity to thank so many for their dedicated service alongside seafarers,” Revd Canon Wright said.
