What is life without my love?

Learning to grow through the pain of bereavement

A couple of years ago I wrote a book in which I tell the story of my wife’s illness and death. During lockdown I finished writing a second book on bereavement. It is intended to be a resource for faith-focused bereavement groups.

This autumn we will run a group at St Mark’s Church Hall, Denham Green, beginning on Friday, October 15th, at 4pm. It will run every Friday for seven weeks. I’m sure it will be a helpful and positive experience for those who have lost a spouse or loved one. If you are going through the experience of grief I hope you will join me so that we can learn together and discover that quality of hope that the Bible describes as “an anchor for the soul.”
