When: 10am-4pm Saturday, 7 November 2021
Cost: $20.00 RSVP: email@example.com by 30 October 2020
Rev Alister Hendery will take a reflective practical workshop on grieving. It is for anyone who wishes to reflect on their own experiences of loss, and for people who want to support others who grieve. It will cover:
• We all lose and grieve – far more than we realise.
• What do we make of our grief?
• The way you grieve is utterly unique to you.
• What can we offer someone who is in the midst of grief?
• Where does God fit into the pain of grief?
