The Commonwealth Games is being hosted in and around Birmingham this summer. Here are some ways to pray for the Games and the preparation for them, and some ways in which you might be involved.
Bereavement Point expanding in Coventry
Foleshill Road URC are working with the Department of Spiritual Care at UHCW NHS Trust to host a Bereavement drop in called ‘Bereavement Point’ for people who have been bereaved.
A number of church members have been trained in basic bereavement support and along with a Chaplain they host a monthly informal drop in. Every family who has had a death in the hospital receive a letter inviting them to one of the drop ins either at the hospital or Foleshill Rd URC. We are expanding this service further into the community over the coming year as we realised there is a huge need as communities are becoming more isolated and people’s needs aren’t being met.
As a church and as a Chaplaincy Team we believe the way forward to provide support in communities is in collaboration with as many agencies as possible.
