Our Mission

The Bethany Bereavement Support Group is a voluntary parish/community based service which aims to help and support bereaved adults. 

The name Bethany recalls the visit of Jesus to Mary and Martha on the death of their brother Lazarus. 

  • Grieving a loss is a natural process which 

    will very often be helped by the support and understanding of family and friends. 

    Sometimes, you may welcome the support 

    of a trained bereavement support volunteer 

    to journey with you through your loss and grief.

    Bethany members have themselves been 


    They are trained to listen with understanding 

    and empathy. They will accept you as you are

     and will support you for as long is necessary.

    The spiritual dimension of grief is recognised.
