West Bay - Dorset
Sea Sunday - 2016
Sunday, 10th July, 4:00pm
The Wessex Military Band will lead a parade from Fisherman's Green, comprising of Bridport Sea Cadets, West Bay Sea Scouts and others associated with the 'life of the sea.' This will be followed by an open air service on Harbour Green. The Service will be held in the adjacent St. John's Church if the weather is wet.
Sea Sunday began in 1975 when the three Christian maritime missionary societies – The Mission to Seafarers (Anglican), the Apostleship of the Sea (Roman Catholic) and the Sailors’ Society (Free Church) decided there should be a day in which the contributions of seafarers to the country were recognised. Sea Sunday has gone on to become an international day with services, parades and ship blessings.
All are welcome and there will be a collection for the work of the Missions to Seafarers and the RNLI.
Sea Sunday is normally held on the second Sunday in July.
