At a Loss - bereavement support
From the Loss and Hope initiative
A coalition of Christian organisations has developed resources to help the Church support the bereaved. They recognise that churches developing support of the bereaved is especially important due to the Coronavirus pandemic and the large number of people who are, and will be, seeking help.
Here is a taster:
Also part of this initiative is an online ‘The Bereavement Journey’ course which churches can run over the coming months for people who have lost loved ones. Developed at Holy Trinity Brompton and appreciated by thousands of people over 20 years, The Bereavement Journey is for anyone who has been bereaved at any time and in any way. By means of a series of films and discussion groups the course gently guides bereaved people through the most common aspects of grief, enabling them to process the implications for themselves and discern next steps. Usually run by churches the course uniquely offers a final session on faith questions in bereavement provided from a Christian perspective. This is optional, thus making The Bereavement Journey suitable for people of any faith or none.
