Thank you for visiting the Loss and HOPE website
We are a coalition of Christian organisations seeking to help the Church support those bereaved – currently equipping churches across the UK to run The Bereavement Journey for those grieving in our nation.
Below is a welcome from Archbishop Justin Welby for churches and a short film by Rev Yemi encouraging churches in communities hardest hit by the pandemic to run The Bereavement Journey (available on social media for sharing).

Bereavement Support – meeting a need
Recent research by the Church of England showed that 91% of people have experienced a bereavement in the past 5 years. Over 2/3rds think the church might be there for them with spaces and places and people.
In this webinar, Head of Life Events Sandra Millar was joined by Katy Tutt, Loss and Hope Project Manager, and together they offered simple, practical ways for anyone to contact, listen to and bless those who mourn – a ministry of all people.
