“Seasons for Growth” Bereavement Support groups have been running regularly in Falkirk Trinity for nearly five years. The groups are open to anyone in the community, of any faith or none, who has experienced the death of someone close to them, whether recently or some time ago. The aim is to help the participants to think about how grief has affected them and to help them develop the skills and knowledge to understand and manage their grief.
Rebuilding your life after a death can be really difficult and everyone can benefit from some help and support.
The groups follow the “Seasons for Growth” programme, reflecting on change, loss and grief and exploring feelings and memories. We meet for four sessions of around two and a half hours with a break included. They are very informal and relaxed meetings, led by trained “Companions”. These are not counselling sessions or therapy, but simply an opportunity to listen, reflect and share with others. There is no charge.
If you want to find out more or have any questions, then please pick up a leaflet in Church or contact the Church Office.
Some feedback from participants –
“It’s been a wonderful insight into grieving. I have enjoyed the companionship, the sincerity and the honesty within the group”
“It was a very well structured programme. The Companions make it easy to understand and I liked also how there was humour as well. Both Companions were very understanding and empathetic”
“A worthwhile programme which gives comfort and understanding”
