A training course to help churches support bereaved people
The Bereavement Care Awareness course has been produced as part of Care for the Family’s bereavement training for churches. It is useful for clergy, church leaders, pastoral care leaders or any volunteer interested in supporting bereaved people – whether they are already engaged in bereavement support or are considering the possibility of developing it.
Bereavement Care Awareness is now online
We’ve been following government guidelines closely on larger gatherings and assessing the wisdom and practicalities of running our training. In light of this, and as a result of the escalating measures to prevent the further spread of the virus, we’ve with heavy hearts decided to postpone our forthcoming training event that were scheduled to run for the rest of this year. We will be looking to start up again in the new year.
In the meantime we have developed on online version of the training. This will be delivered via the ZOOM videoconferencing platform, and dates are now available. Places will initially be capped at 30 per event. The training will last for roughly three hours, with a mix of talks, group activities, videos and individual reflection. There are also some comfort breaks built in!
