Bethany Bereavement Support Group

The Bethany bereavement support group is a voluntary parish based ministry, which aims to help the bereaved and grieving. The name “Bethany” recalls the visit of Jesus to Mary and Martha on the death of their Brother Lazarus.

When Jesus saw her weeping and the Jews who had accompanied her also weeping, He was troubled in spirit, moved by the deepest emotion. “Where have you laid him?,” He asked. “Lord, come and see”, they said. Jesus began to weep”. John 11:33-35.
