Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, we are allowed up to 180 people in church but we please ask that you wear a face mask because some people may have come from areas with higher infection rates.
See our Latest Guidelines for attending church.
When someone you love dies you suddenly have a lot of decisions to make and this can be very hard on top of the emotional challenges of this time.
Your first point of contact is with the funeral directors and they will help you with all of the arrangements.
Whether you wish the service to be at St Lawrence’s or at the crematorium the funeral directors will contact us to fix the date.
Rev. Mike Saunders will then come to meet with you to discuss the service.
If you would like to hold your service in church then please think about giving half of the collection to the church fabric fund. It costs us about £1,700 a week to keep the church open and our only income is the donations of people who use the church.
We run the Bereavement Journey Course for any person who is bereaved, whether recently or dating back several years.
Who is the Bereavement Journey for?
Working through grief and the loss of a loved one takes a long time. Based on Christian principles, the course is suitable for anyone with or without a Christian faith.
Attendance is not advisable for those who have been bereaved within the past three months.
What does the Bereavement Journey cover?
- Attachment, separation and loss
- Death in our culture
- The pain of grief
- Adjusting to change
- The faith perspective
Each evening begins with supper, followed by short talks interspersed with opportunities for discussion in small groups.
- 'It was good to share with others in a safe place.'
- 'The Bereavement Journey helped me to understand what I'd been feeling was normal.'
The Vicarage, Parsonage Lane, Hungerford, Berkshire RG17 0JB
The course will run on Wednesday evenings.
The next running of this course will start on Wednesday, 4th November 2020.
