Event description

Description

The Archdeacons invite you to sign up for a day of Continuing Ministerial Development being hosted in the Diocese. Taking Funerals Seriously is a one day workshop led by the Revd Dr Sandra Millar, drawing on major research from the Church of England’s Funerals Project into changing attitudes to death, dying and funerals in this country. The workshop provides an excellent opportunity to engage with and learn from this national research, and we hope you will find this both informative and enriching to your ministry.

Event details

Talking about death, dying and funerals can be daunting, so the Church of England has been working to find out what people find challenging about this, and to develop resources to support those involved in funeral ministry to have those conversations.

Led by Dr Sandra Millar from the Archbishops’ Council, this one day event gives those involved in funeral ministry the opportunity to:

  • Discover new resources to help support your funeral ministry;
  • Learn more about how ‘Grave Talk’ is helping to break the taboo about talking; and
  • Hear about major research findings emerging from the Archbishops’ Council Funerals Project.

The programme for the day is as follows:

10 - 11.15am The Missional Context and the Public Conversation

11.45am – 1pm Personal and Pastoral: Contemporary Funeral Ministry

1.45 - 2.45pm Professional Relationships

3 – 3.45pm After the Funeral: Bereavement Support, Welcome and Contact

4pm Finish
