The History behind 'Mauretania Day'

On Wednesday 6th July 1935, on her final voyage, RMS Mauretania sailed past Amble on her way to the docks at Rosyth to be broken up.

At 10:25am, the clerk to Amble Urban Council sent the captain of the Mauretania a message of greeting:

"Amble to Mauretania. Greetings from Amble, last port in England, to still the finest ship on the seas".

Back came the reply:
"Mauretaina to Urban Council, Amble, to the last and kindliest port in England, greetings and thanks. Mauretania."

Decades of retelling this story means 'kindliest' has now turned into 'friendliest'.


SERMONS

‘Forgive us our sins, as we forgive those who sin against us’

Words which trip easily off the tongue some weeks in church, and at other times perhaps seem pregnant with meaning, or challenge, or make us feel ashamed?  Steven Cottrell, now Bishop of Chelmsford, writes in the new Pilgrim Course on the baptismal promises, that ‘forgiveness is at the heart of the Christian faith’.  Yet it’s a subject we haven’t touched on much recently in the life of our church.  To rectify that, we have had a sermon series, which is something else we hadn't done in a while!  This time, preachers were invited from outside our community to come and preach to us as well, on this topic which hopefully both challenged us with some new ideas; sustained us in the knowledge of God’s love and expanded our hearts to share more fully in God’s compassion.
