Bereavement Friendly Church
At St Matthew's we are building a team to be able to offer support to those who are recently bereaved and those who have been bereaved some time ago. We are aware from our own experiences that in the same way that we are all unique, we each experience the death of a loved one in different ways. There is no one way to grieve. However there are patterns and similarities which mean that we can reach out to help and to offer support and especially a listening ear.
In the coming months our Bereavement Friendly Church Team led by Susan Kang our Pastoral worker and Helen will aim to be more intentional in the support we can offer.
We are running the Bereavement Journey Course starting on Tuesday 28 September and if you would like to know more about this then please contact Susan Kang on 07745 795395.
If you are bereaved and would like support then please call Susan on the number above or Rev Helen Hancock on 020 8390 3829.
