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.
