Annual National Service for Seafarers

Wednesday, October 11, 2017 - 17:00 to 21:15

The Annual National Service for Seafarers (ANSS), organised by Seafarers UK, will take place at St Paul’s Cathedral on Wednesday 11 October.

This year is a special year, marking three Centenaries: Seafarers UK (King George’s Fund for Sailors), Pangbourne College, and the formation of the Women’s Royal Naval Service (WRNS). The Service is our opportunity to commemorate and celebrate all seafarers from across the maritime profession, alongside representatives of all sectors in the seafaring community, including Royal and Merchant Navies, the fishing industry, commercial shipping, nautical schools, maritime youth groups and veterans’ associations.

The Preacher will be Reverend Oliver Ross, who is currently the Rector of St Olave Hart Street, Guild Vicar of St Katherine Cree, Chaplain of Trinity House and Area Dean of the City of London.
