Boat owners in Surfleet were blessed on a special day celebrated all over the world. 
Sea Sunday is a day when churches come together to remember seafarers and pray for them, their families and those who support them.

As well as raising money to help those who work at sea, the day is celebrated with services, parades and ship blessings.

Sea Sunday is recognised in Surfleet because many villagers own pleasure craft – and the tides also bring in bigger boats.

However this year’s service ended early due to torrential rain.
