Living with loss   At the Beacon

11–15 November 2024 (Mon–Fri)

HAVE YOU BEEN STRUGGLING SINCE THE DEATH OF YOUR LOVED ONE?

Come and join with others who have also experienced life-changing loss through bereavement. The aim of this supported retreat is to help you cope with your life-changing loss. Through a creative variety of activities, including led sessions, discussions and quiet reflection, we explore the journey of grief, with a focus on finding a way forward in the changed circumstances that are the result of bereavement. It includes a special time of candle-lighting remembrance. This is a gentle retreat with a Christian perspective, sensitively led by Abi May, suitable for those who have lost a husband or wife, a child or other close family members, or who have suffered multiple losses, including those bereaved in traumatic circumstances.
