Bereavement Care Awareness

Post image

A training course to help churches support bereaved people

The Bereavement Care Awareness course has been produced as part of Care for the Family’s bereavement training for churches. It is useful for clergy, church leaders, pastoral care leaders or any volunteer interested in supporting bereaved people – whether they are already engaged in bereavement support or are considering the possibility of developing it.

Find out more about the course and why we think it’s important for churches to support bereaved people. Read an article about how an Anglican minister discovered the need for this course through her own bereavement journey.

Watch a short video about the course below:

Hosting a Bereavement Care Awareness course

Would your church be interested in hosting Bereavement Care Awareness for your own members and possibly for other churches in your locality? You can find out more about this here.


Facilitating a Bereavement Care Awareness course

Would you be interested in training to facilitate Bereavement Care Awareness or to let others in your area know about Care for the Family’s bereavement support services? We’re looking for volunteers for both roles. If you think you might be interested, please contact
