THE BEREAVEMENT JOURNEY
A Place to Talk
Are you grieving the death of a loved one or struggling with the long-term effects of loss? We are here to help.
Bereavement can impact hugely and affect all areas of life. "The Bereavement Journey" was developed at Holy Trinity Brompton and appreciated by thousands of people over 20 years. It's a six-session course that can help, for anyone who has been bereaved at any time and in any way.
Using a series of films and gentle discussion it helps guide bereaved people through the most common aspects of grief, enabling them to process the implications for themselves and discern next steps.
Although it is usually run in churches the Bereavement Journey is for anyone of any faith, or no faith, and is non-pressurised and not religious. There is a final session which is entirely optional for anyone who wants to think about faith issues relating to bereavement.
Attachment, separation and loss. The impact and pain of bereavement
Adjusting to change
Anger and guilt
Coping with others’ reactions
Moving on healthily
optional session on Faith questions
Attendance is without any obligation.
Our next "Bereavement Journey" runs on Sunday evenings beginning in November 2023. Get in touch to register or for more information.
Location is Golden Valley Church ("Firehouse"), Newton Avenue, Coney Hill Gloucester, GL4 4NS
"Overwhelmed, tearful, angry and confused following a bereavement?
The Bereavement Journey will help you to explore these feelings in a supportive and friendly group environment.
Listening to other people’s narratives and learning how to deal with these intense emotions, empowers you to understand your individual grief and to take control of it.
Give this programme a try. It will help!"
