Equipping Churches in Bereavement Support

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).

Click here for how to support those bereaved during the pandemic.    

If you have been bereaved please search AtaLoss.org for support services and information, and here for locations of The Bereavement Journey – a place to talk.

Thank you!

The Most Revd and Rt Hon Justin Welby, Archbishop of Canterbury

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.

Watch the webinar and download the slides and additional resources on our news page here.
