Mariposa Trust is a UK charity which supports anyone who has lost a child at any stage of pregnancy, at birth or in infancy. The trust is holding a Saying Goodbye service at Canterbury Cathedral on Saturday 18th July at 12.30pm. The service is for anyone who has either personally lost a baby at any stage of pregnancy, at birth or in early years, or anyone who has been affected by a family member’s or friend’s loss. Whether the loss was recent, or many years ago, everyone is welcome. Babies and children are also invited to come with their family, as the Saying Goodbye service is truly a family event for all. The Mariposa Trust team can be contacted by email at office@sayinggoodbye.org if you have any questions.

Towards the end of July, Lizzie Spring will be donating 7 inches of her wonderful plaits to The Little Princess Trust.

If you would like to sponsor Lizzie, please complete the sponsor form at the cross-aisle in St Mildred’s, or email or ring Lindsay (tentvic@gmail.com  / 761591). Thank you.

* OTHER NEWS

CRY IN THE DARK

Five members of St. Mildred's Church will be going to Romania this August to support the work of Christian charity "Cry in the Dark". Since the beginning of the year the team have worked hard to raise money to cover the cost and can now announce that the target of £3750 has been achieved. They would like to express their sincere thanks to all who have supported them over the past six months, whether it be financially, physically or prayerfully. The team are already looking towards a trip in 2016. A lot of interest has already been shown. If you’d like to help spread the love of Jesus in a small corner of Romania next year then please contact Terry Norrington  (terry.norrington@btinternet.com  / 07711 177726).

SAFEGUARDING

We all want our churches to be safe places in which healthy relationships flourish. To help us achieve this, we have to put in place good working practices which ensure the safety of children and vulnerable adults. In the near future we will be contacting all those who work with children, or who offer direct pastoral care, to make sure that you are up to date with everything and that we have the correct contact details.
