Bereavement Course @ Ammerdown Led by The Reverend Prebendary Narinder Tegally  


When someone dies, it can be a very difficult time for the people involved. You may be a spouse, partner, sibling , carer , relative or a friend. It is a time when there are many practical things that will need to be done, for example, managing care for the dying, registering the death and finding a funeral director. After the funeral you are left with an empty space – this course is for anyone who has been bereaved or dealing with a loss that may be imminent or not too far in the distance.

Grief is a natural response to loss. It’s the emotional suffering you feel when something or someone you love is taken away. You may associate grief with the death of a loved one – and this type of loss does often cause the most intense grief. But any loss can cause grief, including:


A relationship break-up

Loss of health

Losing a job

Loss of financial stability

A miscarriage

Death of a pet

Loss of a cherished dream

A loved one’s serious illness

Loss of a friendship

Loss of safety after a trauma


Narinder will be leading a 4 week course exploring some of the questions , emotions  and thoughts that arise  concluding with a Pre- Christmas Blue Quiet day
