Bereavement Care

CandlesMENSTON & BURLEY BEREAVEMENT

CARE GROUP

- confidential
- at the individual's request
- for everyone in Menston & Burley-in-Wharfedale

This was an initiative of Menston Methodist Church in 2000 but quickly involved other churches in Menston and Burley-in-Wharfedale and individuals not linked to a church. All members have completed a training course in helping bereaved people and help is confidential and at the request of anyone living in (or with strong links) to the 2 villages.  Bereavement may have been recent or some time ago, and help is available to all villagers, whether of any faith or none.

To enquire about the service ring Margaret Christelow on 01943 872807 or drop in to the Cornerstone Cafe on Tuesday mornings between 10am and 12 noon when a member of the Group is available.  When a funeral has taken place at Menston Methodist Church a member of the Group tries to contact the nearest relative about a month later, when other support may begin to withdraw, to see if they can be of help.
