The Sailors’ Society 200 Year Celebrations also took place at some churches. One of Sailors’ Society chaplains, Jessie John presented a very interesting and well received talk at the Lambert Road Baptist Church in Durban.

She also organised a “200” cake which all enjoyed, especially the kiddies.

Jessie also visited seafarers on board vessels in the Port of Durban. She handed out publications, stickers and information about the celebration at the Mission.

Their vessels may have left port prior to the event but it was worthwhile spending time with the seafarers she said.
