St Paul’s Church in Craig y Don will be marking Sea Sunday with the traditional service of choral evensong at 4pm on Sunday 7th July to raise money for the RNLI.
Sea Sunday, which falls at the beginning of July, is the day when churches remember those whose lives take them out to sea, for work or pleasure.
Choral Evensong is a 45-min long reflective service in which the ‘song’ of voices sounding together in harmony is heard at the ‘even’ point between the active day and restful night, allowing listeners time for restful contemplation.
The service features music from Mendelssohn and the hymn “Eternal Father Strong To Save (For Those In Peril On The Sea)”.
Rev Noel Carter, rector of St Paul’s, said: “the RNLI recently moved to a new boathouse close to our church, so it seems right that we should support the work of the Llandudno lifeboat crew – spiritually and financially.
“The crew provide a valuable service to our community, and the service is chance to say thank you for that, and remember the risks that the RNLI take in saving lives.”
