Grief Companionship for the Bereaved

September 16, 2023 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am

FREE

Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.
(Matthew 5.5)

Have you had a life-changing loss of someone close to you through bereavement?

Do you wish you had an opportunity to talk to someone trained in grief companionship in your local parish?

If so, we can help……

From 16 September 2023 from 10 30-11.30am, there will begin a monthly drop-in Centre at the Heeran Room, English Martyrs Church, Teddington Avenue, Huddersfield HD5 9HS, where sympathetic people will be available to welcome and walk alongside you confidentially in your grief.  You will have the opportunity to spend time, in conversation or in quiet reflection, within a relaxed tranquil environment, that is completely discreet and free of charge.

Refreshments will be provided alongside relevant literature and prayerful material.

This new programme, which was launched in the Leeds Diocese last September, is supported by Bishop Marcus and run by Elizabeth Prout Bereavement Care.

If you would like to receive more information, please contact Maureen at: mo.crossley67a@icloud.com & 07803 309 788 or Christine 07806 779 126
