Helping bereaved people find faith


Watch Vicar Mike Saunders explain how St Laurence’s Church in Hungerford helps people who have been bereaved to start a journey to faith using The Bereavement Journey as part of a rhythm of mission.

Many thousands of people are facing the loss of someone they know as a result of Covid-19. Bereavement support is important under normal circumstances but now it is crucial for future well-being and mental health.  

Loss and HOPE was launched just before the Covid-19 crisis to enable the Church to respond effectively with support for those who are grieving. This timely coalition between HOPE Together, Care for the Family, the Church of England and At A Loss, is developing support for the increased numbers of people who are bereaved at this time. The church-facing website is gathering ideas from Christians across the country to help churches support the bereaved. This is just the beginning of a growing movement of churches developing their support. We are also connecting Christians who are experts in supporting people who are bereaved, so churches can run the Bereavement Journey course.
