THE BEREAVEMENT JOURNEY
The Bereavement Journey is run over 6 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 Bereavement Journey will be starting on Friday 3rd March. There are 5 weekly sessions until 31st March, then a 6th optional session on questions of faith that arise in bereavement on Friday 14th April.
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.
