Maritime welfare charity Sailors' Society is asking churches in north Norfolk to remember the world's seafarers in a special service on 14 July.
Congregations from around the world will take part in Sea Sunday services in aid of Sailors' Society.
Each year, the Christian charity, which celebrated its 200th birthday in 2018, asks churchgoers to pray and give thanks for the world's 1.6m seafarers.
Sandra Welch, Sailors' Society's deputy chief executive, said: 'Whether they know it or not, the people of north Norfolk rely upon seafarers.
'More than 90pc of everything we own comes by sea – our clothes, phones, cars – even the bricks that make up our homes.

'All of these goods are brought into the country by seafarers who risk extreme loneliness, dangerous storms and even piracy.'
