Bereavement Support Group
St Margaret’s Church Bereavement Group exists to provide support, companionship and helpful information to those who have been bereaved either in the St Margaret’s Church or local communities. Our team have received appropriate training from the local Hospice. Support offered includes time to talk on a one to one basis, befriending generally, and coffee mornings twice a month – one on church premises which includes a topic related to bereavement, and a more informal gathering at Haskins, our local Garden Centre. We also hold an annual Bereavement Service in October to which all are invited. You can find the schedule for this term below.

Starts here - Thursday 4th November. Sign up here to register to come
Bereavement can impact hugely and affect all areas of life. Developed at Holy Trinity Brompton and appreciated by thousands of people over 20 years, The Bereavement Journey is for anyone who has been bereaved at any time and in any way. By means of a series of films and discussion groups it gently guides bereaved people through the most common aspects of grief, enabling them to process the implications for themselves and discern next steps. Usually run by churches The Bereavement Journey uniquely offers a final session on faith questions in bereavement provided from a Christian perspective. This is optional, thus making The Bereavement Journey suitable for people of any faith or none.
