Living after Loss


Living after Loss is a small friendly group that meets on alternate Friday mornings between 11.00 am and 12.00 noon, in the Parish Room, St Mary’s Church, Fishponds (behind Fishponds Park); quickest access route the Parish Room via the gate off Manor Road (blue door). Meetings are non-religiously based although there is an opportunity to light a candle and/or have some quiet time in the church if you wish.

Loss may be a bereavement of family, friend or pet or a loss such as redundancy, health problems, retirement, relationship breakdown, unemployment or other loss. The group does not provide any formal counselling but we do offer a safe friendly, quiet space to talk to any member of our group.

Meetings are informal, the group gather together over a cup of tea or coffee and light refreshments. Support comes from the members of the group who share their experiences of loss and strategies for dealing with a sad situation. Sometimes support comes from just meeting as a group and conversation may revolve around everyday life or what-ever the group wish to talk about. The group is open to all regardless of gender, age, race or religion.

Anyone is welcome to join, some of the members have been with the group since it started whilst others have come for a while until they feel they no longer need the groups’ support.
