This training event about funerals and bereavement is being run by the Wales Synod Good Grief group in January. “Conducting funerals has never been the sole prerogative of ministers of word and sacraments and the role of funeral celebrants is becoming increasingly important. A good supportive pastoral ministry in this area is also vital in congregations where stipendiary ministry is either part time or non-existent.”
The fee for the course is £150; a bursary of 50% to assist with the cost would be available from the SW Synod for those wishing to attend.
Bookings to be made via Wales Synod at firstname.lastname@example.org . NB: the deadline for bookings is 14th December 2017.
