Event description
Whether death has been very sudden or illness has caused a long goodbye, we need to be prepared to offer what help we can.

About this Event

And for us this is the end of all the stories, and we can most truly say that they all lived happily ever after. But for them it was only the beginning of the real story. All their life in this world and all their adventures in Narnia had only been the cover and the title page: now at last they were beginning Chapter One of the Great Story which no one on earth has read: which goes on for ever: in which every chapter is better than the one before.” C.S. Lewis, The Last Battle.

Death is inevitable, and these joyful words from “The Last Battle” are full of hope. Yet we know that death often doesn’t feel like this. There is pain and bewilderment, especially for children. Whether death has been very sudden or illness has caused a long goodbye, we need to be prepared to offer what help we can. Perhaps the hardest is the death of a child with the support needed for the community in such a case. We will use a range of resources which can be bought or downloaded.
