BRILLIANT sunshine welcomed more than 70 people to the Sea Sunday Service on Front Street, Pembroke Dock on July 9.

Sea Sunday is marked annually on the second Sunday of July and is an opportunity for churches to pray for seafarers and to highlight the ministry of the Sailors’ Society.

Among those attending were representatives of the churches of Pembroke Dock, members of Scout Active Support and 3rd Pembroke Scouts.

Also in attendance was the Deputy Mayor of Pembroke Cllr Linda Brown and her consort Chris Doyle.

The service was led by Superintendent Christine King, Port Officer, South Wales for the Fishermen’s Mission. The service began with a minutes silence for the coxswain employed by Svitzer who died a few days earlier whilst on holiday with his family and to remember all seafarers who have died, or been seriously injured in the last 12 months.

The lessons were read by Rev Marina Evans and Pat Jones, the prayers were led by Sheena Fisher, and Pembroke Boro’ band accompanied the hymns.
