The service celebrated 25 years of supporting the families of premature and sick babies born in Northern Ireland and remembered babies who are no longer with us.

The Dean of Belfast, the Very Rev John Mann said: “There are few things that reflect more clearly the frailty of human life than a premature baby, whilst parents who for days, or even weeks, may not be able to hold their young infant, lack the very comforting touch of parenthood.

“As TinyLife supports such families in sorrow and in joy, we give our thanks in St Anne’s for the gift of life itself, the wonders of medical science, and the skills and dedication of staff, that allow many babies born before full term to survive.”

Taking part in the service was Irish folk singer and TinyLife patron, Cara Dillon, who performed several songs from her recent album.
