Praying Your Goodbyes

1 day to go

 
Praying Your Goodbyes

A special invitation to anybody who is grieving or has experienced a loss over lockdown.

Mulbarton Church will remain open during daylight hours throughout the summer break, and we are making a special set of resources available for people to come and pray their goodbyes.  You may have said goodbye to a loved one over lockdown, or you may be grieving a loss of another kind.  Your local church is here to provide space for you to respond to these inevitable but unwelcome goodbyes.

  • Palm crosses to hang on the church railings in memory
  • Candles to light inside the church in memory
  • Space in the church for private prayer &/or stillness
  • Printed resources available to browse in the church
  • Online resources signposted to help in your grief journey

On Sunday 22 Aug, we will gather the palm crosses, which will have collected on the railings and pray over them in the morning service, inviting God to help with all the loss they represent.
