Jumu’ah Prayer (Friday)

Friday prayers take place weekly in the Hospital Chapels at each site. Ablution facilities are available.

Emergency Baptism or Blessings

Emergency Baptism or Blessings can be administered at the request of the baby’s family. Staff are able to contact the on-call Chaplain if requested.

Baby Memorial Services

This takes place every second Sunday of the month at the Princess Royal Hospital at 2.30pm. Invitations will be sent out to the bereaved parents to attend the service.

Other services we can provide include the reading of the Last Rites and Anointing.

Details of services are displayed outside the Hospital Chapels.

Prayer Trees

Prayer Trees have been introduced at each hospital Chapel to provide a way for people to request a prayer for someone important to them, for a team they would like to recognise or for people they would like to be remembered. Prayers can be hung onto the trees and each tree will be pruned at the end of the month, leaves gathered, dedicated, and then disposed of in a sensitive way.
