Saying Goodbye Service 2017 - London

The Mariposa Trust is one of the UK's leading charities, with its core objective being to support people who have lost babies at any stage of pregnancy, at birth, or in infancy. It was founded in 2012, by Zoe and Andy Clark-Coates, who saw a critical lack of support for people like them, who had gone through baby loss. With over 258,000 babies being lost yearly in the UK alone, the charity needed to be able to offer not only a comprehensive package of befriending and support, but also national baby loss remembrance services (called Saying Goodbye Services), for people to join together and remember the children they had lost. Four years on 99 services have taken place at Cathedrals and Minsters across the UK, US and France, and there are 20 plus more services already planned for 2018.

On the 26th November at 3.30pm in Methodist Central Hall in Westminster, the trust is holding its 100th Saying Goodbye service.

So who is the service for?

Anyone who has either personally lost a baby at any stage of pregnancy, at birth or in early years, or who has been affected by a family members or friends loss. Whether the loss was recent or 80 years ago, everyone is welcome to attend. We have also extended the services, and gladly welcome anyone who is grieving the fact that they haven't had children. This may be due to circumstance, infertility or for other reasons — but all are welcome. Babies and children are also invited to come with their family, as the Saying Goodbye service is truly a family event for all.
