Life Events Life Events Webinars

As we've journeyed through varying levels of pandemic restrictions, the Life Events team has offered webinars to help. 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. Much of what was broadcast willstill apply as you begin to rebuild your Life events ministries.

Remembering: A future concern
If someone has died during the Covid-19 pandemic, their funeral will have been quite different to how their death might otherwise have been marked. Families and friends will want to gather together to remember the person who has died once it is again safe to do so. This session explored how churches might support the bereaved at the time when restrictions are lifted.
