Training Course, May 2021: Pastoral Care of the Bereaved

(This information is mostly taken from the flyer.)

Death is a fact of life. But when it happens to someone you love, it is devastating. At this time, the Unitarian congregation can provide the sort of loving care that a bereaved person needs.

The Midland Unitarian Association of Lay Preachers and Service Leaders is offering a one-day course for lay people, covering the basics of the pastoral care of the bereaved within our congregations.

The course, which will be led by Rev. Ant. Howe (Ministry Tutor of Unitarian College), will focus on:

  • The grieving process
  • Pastoral issues around bereavement
  • Running a bereavement group

Where: Via Zoom
Dates: Saturday 8th May 2021
Times: 10.00 a.m. to 4.15 p.m. (coffee/tea from 9.30 a.m.)
Cost: FREE (to people from MUA congregations)
£10 (to people from outside the MUA)

There will be opportunities for coffee breaks and lunch during the day.

Pre-registration required. Contact us ASAP for further information.
