Annual memorial service for babies (1)

A service of remembrance for babies who have died before or soon after birth will take place on Wednesday 6th March 2019, at St. Cuthbert's Church, North Road, Durham, starting at 7.00pm. 

Families who have lost a baby in any way, but especially those who have suffered a miscarriage or stillbirth, are invited to attend to remember their baby. 

During the service the names of the babies to be remembered will be read, and families will be able to light candles in memory of their baby. 

The annual service is organised and led by the chaplaincy team at University Hospital of North Durham on behalf of County Durham and Darlington NHS Foundation Trust and is supported by Co-Operative Funeralcare.  This year the bishop of Durham (The Rt. Revd Paul Butler) will be in attendance and will lead a time of reflection. 

Simple refreshments will be served following the service. 

Anyone wanting to find out more about the service can contact: Reverend Kevin Tromans, Chaplaincy Office, University Hospital of North Durham, DH1 5TW. 

Telephone: 0191 333 2183.

'I have to compliment everyone on their pleasant persona and their expertise and knowledge. By the end of the 5 days, I did not feel as though I had been in a hospital ward and was very relaxed.'
