After A Loved One...

Home » News » After A Loved One...

The Bereavement Group will meet again in the vestry on Thursday 9th June at 2.30pm and then monthly on the second Thursday of each month. We are a small group, meeting once a month to share together and offer support to each other over a cup of tea and a biscuit. If you would like more information, please phone Joy Murphy on 0784 1536892 or 01296 428319 and leave a message.

Grieving is a natural and important part of coming to terms with and healing this loss and it may continue for several months. There are people in this church who have experienced loss and they are often the best people to offer support in the months and years following a death. Joy Murphy, who lost her husband Reverend Bill Murphy, has formed our Bereavement Group. This meets informally and is for anyone, of any age, who has suffered loss or bereavement either recently or in the past. There are patterns and themes to bereavement but each person is different and it is important for people to be supported in finding their own way through grief.

Indeed, no one understands them; they utter mysteries by the Spirit. 3 But the one who prophesies speaks to people for their strengthening, encouraging and...

Pete Honeyball: Thu 10 Jun 5:00am

Love is Pete's theme with this beautiful chapter of 1 Corinthians 13.Love Is Indispensable1 If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. 2 If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. 3 If I give all...
