Seeing lives transformed through encounter with Jesus
If someone you love has died recently and you would like us to take their funeral, please contact one of the Ministry Team. We are also here to offer support and a listening ear when things are tough, either at the time of bereavement, or in the months and years that follow; during the year we have specific memorial services to which we invite any who have been bereaved. The following Church of England website also provides useful resources and help here Funerals. Please do contact us to see if we can help you in any way.
The Bereavement Friendship Group (BFG)
This drop-in group meets on the 2nd Wednesday of each month 2-4pm at St. Mary's church, Upchurch. A listening ear and good refreshments.
The group is for those coping with the loss of a loved one. It offers a listening ear, no matter when you were bereaved. This is a place to talk about your feelings safely and in confidence with others who will know and understand what you are going through. We do not offer counselling but as a church-based group we do offer prayer support if wished.
