Supportive Events

Living with Loss supportive events are residential weekends, weeks or single days. They are intended for anyone, age 18 and over,  who is grieving as a result of bereavement.

The retreats are suitable for widows, widowers and partners, bereaved parents and siblings, those who have lost parents or close family members, or those who have suffered multiple losses. (Some retreats are for specific types of loss.)

These retreats are a safe, supportive environment in which to explore grief and loss, to remember loved ones, and to discover ways forward in our life’s journey. Most events are small with around 8 – 15 participants.

The retreats are run from a gentle non-denominational Christian perspective. Most participants identify themselves as Christians. However, there is no requirement to be a Christian, and followers of other faiths or those with no faith are most welcome, as long as you are comfortable with some Christian content such as songs, readings and prayers.
