BEREAVEMENT MINISTRY TRAINING
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
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
a Friday evening followed by the Saturday
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.
