Marriage Preparation Courses

The Team

Family Support Organisations




As a Church we are very good at responding in a crisis,
but what do we offer the bereaved
once the initial shock has passed?



The parish ministry to the bereaved is a hand of friendship
helping people come to terms with their loss.
Although they will never end their grieving,
with help they can move on and grow spiritually.
It is not counselling, for which extensive training is required.
It is a befriending in a sensitive and empathetic way.


The course can be given over 4 evenings of 2 hours, spread over 4 weeks
or all day Saturday 9am - 5 pm

It can be held in your parish hall or for a group of parishes.

The cost for the course is 200 based on at least 6 participants
and no more than 12 for the same price.
