Living with life-changing loss following bereavement   At the Beacon

12–16 November 2018 (Mon–Fri)

Grief can be overwhelming, particularly if we have lost a partner or child, or if our loved one’s passing was sudden or traumatic. The aim of this supported retreat is to better equip us to cope with our life-changing loss. We will explore the reality of grief as well as the hope Jesus offers as we consider practical and creative ways to live with our loss and journey onwards through life. This conference is held at The Beacon Centre
