This full day conference will give fresh vision and practical ideas including:
The unique strengths of pastoral and spiritual care
Talking death and dying in a changing culture
Engaging effectively with funeral directors
Effective tools for follow up and bereavement support
New resources to help support your funeral ministry
Tom Pearson will be available throughout the day to offer advice and support on the web-based resources. Including the print shop and the Pastoral Services Diary.
The Revd Dr Sandra Millar heads up national work for the Church of England around life events, including funerals. Her work helps churches to be part of the conversation about death and dying, help people plan good funerals and offer support through remembering, grief and bereavement.
