SEA SUNDAY – 11 July 2021
Today is Sea Sunday, an ‘International Day of Prayer for Seafarers’. On Sea Sunday churches all over the world come together to remember seafarers and to pray for them, their families and those who support them.
The Mission to Seafarers in Docklands has a vast ministry in working and supporting these seafarers, in areas such as:
- Transport to and from ships;
- Assistance when far from home;
- Supporting hospital visits;
- Shopping during covid when there has been no shore leave.
For more details about Sea Sunday and how you can support the Mission to Seafarers, please see the notice-board.

CHURCH GIVING AND THE PARISH FINANCES
Owing to the Covid protocols, the Sunday 10am Service attendance has been slow to recover despite being permitted to have 30 people at worship. As a result the collections have been reduced and the parish finances suffering. Can I encourage our parishioners to contribute on a regular basis by using the banking details below. Apart from the Op Shop, all of our fundraising efforts have been suspended, so the need is considerable. Noel
