It has been a very difficult time for churches and for all those we meet through Life Events services, especially those who grieve. Use these pages to look back on all that we offered and learned..


You can still access our support from the comfort of your home and look back on the expertise, advice, reflections and practical tips that helped you manage the impact of Covid-19 on Life Events services.
