Major life-events such as loss of a job, a relationship, a home, health and a loved one have a huge impact on well-being. We want to reach out to those in the fellowship of our church and the Epsom community who are experiencing or have experienced loss and bereavement, to offer support, friendship and fellowship in a safe environment. The pastoral team at EMC will be starting, from April, a Tuesday Drop-In, focusing on those experiencing loss and bereavement. The pastoral team will pray regularly for those families being contacted and the people attending the Drop-In.
The Tuesday Drop-In will be open between 2 pm to 3.30 pm on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of each month, located in the Roots area at EMC.The group will provide a safe and supportive space for listening and being heard, for friendship and fellowship. We will be responsive to need and able to ‘signpost’ useful services and organisations.
Please come. Feel free to bring a friend. We look forward to meeting you over tea and cake.
The focus group members are: Carol Stringer; Val Imms; Libby Fairweather; Lisa Halstead; Pauline Nott and Jane Williams. If you would like to be involved in the support group, you will be very welcome. Please pray that we can provide a useful and supportive outreach and demonstrate God’s love for us all as we try to support one another.
