Ahead of the boats returning to Tenby’s waters on Wednesday, St. Julian’s Church by the harbour held the now annual ‘Blessing of The Boats’ Service on Sunday.

The service of Hymns, Poetry, Bible Readings and Prayers for the whole Harbour Community was very well attended.

Towards the end of the service, the Revd Canon Andrew Grace led the congregation out into the Harbour to conduct the Blessing after the name of every boat had been read out by Susie Brooks Co-Warden of St. Julian’s Church. A collection also raised over £130 for Tenby RNLI.

St. Julian's Church is now open every day throughout the season.

In addition to Weddings, Baptisms and occasional services, St. Julian's aims to be a haven in the harbour where people can take a few minutes out of their day for quiet reflection and peaceful thought.

Visitors to the Church can also write a prayer and place it in the prayer-lobster-pot, where it will be safely held.

The operation to crane the boats back into the harbour waters ahead of the holiday season will take place on April 5.
