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? That is the bereavement ministry.

The parish ministry to the bereaved is a hand of friendship helping people come to terms with their loss. Although they may never end their grieving, with help they can move on and grow spiritually.

It is not counselling, for which extensive training is required, but rather befriending in a sensitive and empathetic way.


Ministry to the Bereaved Retreat/Training Courses
