Pastoral Care Course

DivorceCare

 

Most people will tell you that separation and divorce are the most painful and stressful experiences they’ve ever faced.

It’s a confusing time when you feel isolated and have lots of questions about issues you’ve never faced before.

DivorceCare is a 10 week course which meets weekly to help you face these challenges and move toward rebuilding your life. Each session has two distinct elements:

 

A Seminar with Experts:

During the first 30–40 minutes of the meeting, each DivorceCare group watches a video seminar featuring top experts on divorce and recovery subjects. These videos are produced in an interesting-to-watch television magazine format featuring expert interviews, real-life case studies and on-location video.

 

A Support Group with Focus:

After viewing the video, DivorceCare group participants spend time as a support group, discussing what was presented in that week’s video seminar and what is going on in the lives of group members.

 

When

The next course begins on Thursday 5th January 2017 at 7.30 pm in the Committee Room. For details regarding the next DivorceCare Course contact the Church Office. To book your place on the course click here.

GriefShare

 

GriefShare is a friendly, caring group of people who will walk alongside you through one of life’s most difficult experiences. You don’t have to go through the grieving process alone. If you’ve lost a spouse, child, family member, or friend, you’ve probably found there are not many people who understand the deep hurt you feel.

This can be a confusing time when you feel isolated and have many questions about things you’ve never faced before. “Going to GriefShare feels like having warm arms wrapped around you when you’re shivering.”

GriefShare groups meet weekly to help you face these challenges and move toward rebuilding your life.

 

Each GriefShare session has three distinct elements:

  • Video seminar with experts
  • Support group discussion with focus
  • Personal study and reflection

 

When to join a GriefShare group?

You are welcome to begin attending the GriefShare group at any session. Each is self-contained, so you do not have to attend in sequence. You will find encouragement and help whenever you begin. You will be able to continue with GriefShare through the next 13-week cycle and view any of the videos you have not seen.

When

The next GriefShare Course commences on Friday 6 October 2017 at 7.30 pm.  For more information contact the Church Office. To book your place on the course click here

 

Who

The GriefShare Course will be led by Anne Burrows or Lorna Milway c/o the Church Office 028 9145 9688
