Lifeboat Sunday 2021

During the premiere of the 150th Anniversary service of thanksgiving and celebration video on the 28th January, the Troon lifeboat crew launched for their first callout of 2021.

150 years after the lifeboat was first made ready, the crew was again risking their lives in the service of life.

Jesus said that “no greater love has one other than to pour out one’s life for one’s friends”.  Thursday evening another life was saved thanks to their work and your support.  Please enjoy this worship service as we continue to wish the RNLI Troon God-Speed.
