The Sea Service
The annual ‘Churches Together in Sark’ Sea Service was held in Creux Harbour last Sunday. Around a hundred people gathered on the quayside for the service of thanksgiving for the ocean and those who work at sea. Methodist Student Minister Karen Le Mouton led the call to worship and the prayer of thanksgiving and Richard Collas, the Baliff of Guernsey, gave the first reading. The second reading was given by Kathleen Dewe representing the Roman Catholic Church and Anglican Lay Reader David Neale gave a thoughtful and humorous address. Visiting Anglican minister Neil Britton led the final prayers and the hymns were accompanied by Guernsey’s Salvation Army band. The lifeboat, Spirit of Guernsey, and the Flying Christine III ambulance vessel were also in the harbour for the service and afterwards members of the congregation were able to look round both ships before they returned to Guernsey. The Salvation Army band was brought from Guernsey by the Brecqhuo Lass, which was also in attendance.
