St Giles Bereavement Help Point

If you are familiar with our church logo, you will know that we have as our tag-line: “Serving Our Community… the Church at Rosedale School.” One of the most important aspects of being a church is, I believe, a commitment to helping others; and this month, Furzebank Worship Centre will be embarking upon an important project – working with St. Giles’ Hospice and the Short Heath Federation to set up a Bereavement Help Point.

Bereavement Help Points are the creation of St. Giles’ Hospice. They are to be found all over the Lichfield, Walsall and the surrounding areas and their aim is to provide a listening ear and practical information and support to anyone who has been bereaved. Our Bereavement Help Point will be starting on Friday 19th October and will take place every Friday morning from 10.00 am to 12.00 noon. It will be staffed by volunteers from the church, school, and St. Giles; and it is open to anyone whose loved one has passed away whether recently or many years ago – they don’t need to have been connected to St. Giles for you to come along.

If you would like further information, please do phone (07972 523162) or email ( me; and if you know of someone whom you think would benefit from such a group, then please do let them know.

Revd. Helen Duckett.
