2011 Christmas Service


Dumfries and Galloway Sands warmly invite you, your family and friends to our annual Christmas Service.




Crichton Royal ChurchFriday 16th December 20117.30pm






Christmas, a time of family and friends,  can be a difficult time if you have suffered the loss of a baby.  We invite you to come along and join with others in remembering your baby at this special time of year.  You will be invited to light a candle and place a special message to your baby on the beautiful Christmas tree.  

Tea, coffee and home-made shortbread will be available after the service.  


Next Support Meeting

The next support group meeting is planned for

  • 7th November: 7.30pm

and we welcome anyone touched by the death of a baby to join us.

The meeting will be held at our office at 107 Irish Street Dumfries.

Many people feel that only others who have experienced the death of a baby can offer real understanding of the pain and heartbreak that they are feeling and the support group meetings allow you to connect with other bereaved parents, grandparents and others who share your pain and loss.

The support group is an informal setting and is only attended by people who themselves have lost a baby or their families. You will not be pressured to speak and sometimes it’s nice just to simply come along and listen.

If anyone would like more information about these meetings or would like to express an interest in attending then please email [email protected]
