After two workshops, we are pleased to report we have group of volunteer visitors. We plan to continue to meet monthly to learn from each other, pray and support each other. The next meeting will be 7pm on Tuesday 9th January in the Church Hall. If you have any questions, please ask Susan Osborne (07926 833684), Sian Cheverton (01572 755286) or Madeleine Morris (07754 414437) or one of the ministry team.
What are we planning? We are launching a new bereavement support service in the Parish. The plan is to
* offer visits to bereaved families who have funerals at All Saints;
* provide support and a listening ear;
* signpost to other resources.
Why visit? Bereaved people can feel isolated. Sometimes we find it difficult to join organised activities or find a safe space to talk about our journeys of grief.
Who is involved? Sian Cheverton (a local semi-retired GP), Susan Osborne (a trained counsellor, lay pastoral minister and who is married to one of our curates) and Madeleine Morris (a trained counsellor and lay pastoral assistant).
Can you join us? We need three strands of supporters
* administrative helpers (e.g. for anniversary cards);
* prayer supporters.
How? To find out more, please talk to Susan Osborne (07926 833684), Sian Cheverton (01572 755286) or Madeleine Morris (07754 414437) or one of the ministry team.
