The Life Events team has toured dioceses and staged national conferences over the last five years to bring you support, insights and resources for baptisms, weddings and funerals. You can still access our continued support from the comfort of your home as we bring you expertise, advice, reflections and practical tips to help you manage the impact of Covid-19 on life events services. Join others in this series of webinars, part of the wider support offered by the Evangelism & Discipleship team – see the entire webinar programme here.
These future sessions are part of a series of webinars from the National Evangelism and Discipleship Team. There are three on Life Events – specifically focused on funerals, bereavement and remembering. We hope you can join us.
‘Using Technology to Support Funeral Ministry’. This very practical webinar explored some of the ways that you can create a simple online service on the day of a funeral for those who can’t attend in person.
‘Bereavement: an ongoing concern’ delivered on Thursday, May 14th, 10am. Everyone’s experience of bereavement is unique, but the way we can offer our support has changed during this unprecedented time. During this session we looked at who the bereaved are and how everyone in our churches can support them.
Remembering: A future concern, delivered 11.30am. 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.
‘Funerals: An immediate concern’. On May 1st 2020, Canon Sandra Millar, Head of Life Events, delivered this webinar to over 900 delegates outlining some practical advice, thoughts and reflections for funerals during the Covid-19 pandemic.
