Finding a way forward after the death of a loved one can sometimes be a daunting experience.
Part of our care after the funeral involves a small but dedicated team of trained lay people who, if requested, are available to offer confidential and friendly support to next of kin in the early months following their bereavement.
Psalm 23 v 4.
'Even though I walk
through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil,
for you are with me,
Your rod and your staff,
they comfort me.'
'Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God.'
2 Corinthians Chapter 1 3-4
A bereavement is a sad time and to help those who are grieving we have a team of clergy and readers trained and experienced in leading funeral services. Usually, families contact their undertaker first when bereavement arrives, and a visit from the clergy follows. However, if you'd like to have a word with us first, before or after your loved one has passed away, please contact the Parish Office.
