The Bereavement Journey is run over 7 sessions, and is for anyone who has been bereaved at any time and in any way. By means of a series of short videos and small groups for discussion, it gently guides bereaved people through the most common aspects of grief.

People who attend the course value being in a group with other people who understand what it is to be bereaved.

One participant said “Talking about my bereavement has really helped me come to terms with my loss and deal with my emotions.”

The next course starts on 28th June and will run weekly on Friday afternoons until 9th August, from 1.30pm to 3.30pm at our Chapel site. If you would be interested in attending, please get in touch with Sarah at the contacts below.

If you’d like to attend a Bereavement Journey course, please contact Sarah at or 07526 239276.

Showing God’s love and compassion through caring for those in need.

Jesus encourages us to feed those who are hungry and to give clothes to those in need, telling us that whenever we do this, we are doing it for Him.

(Matthew 25:31-46)
