our lives we all experience the loss of people who are close to us -
as even a small child may lose a dearly loved grandparent. By the time
we become adults it is highly likely that bereavement will already have
been a part of our lives.
When the Time Together Group was started, people who had been bereaved
in more recent years were invited to come along. The other churches
in the area were told about the group so that their members could be
invited too. Anyone is welcome to join us regardless of faith, and many
of our members are not Catholics.
Meetings are usually held on the second Saturday of each month in the
Hall Lounge from 2.30pm to 4pm.
In June and December we have a simple Remembrance Service (with hymns
, prayers and readings) in the Church and this is followed by Afternoon
During the other months the meetings are purely social in nature with
a variety of activities (talks, quizzes, Bingo, Music, Dancing, Beetle
Drives, etc.) and tea, coffee, cakes and biscuits.
There is no charge to come to meetings but we do have a very modest
raffle to cover the cost of running the group.
The group does not meet in August.
