The next series of Grief Circles will resume
this Summer (2020).
Grief Circle: Please contact Cat Greenstreet (email@example.com) or Pastor Thom if you are interested in participating in Grief Circles.
At Lyall, we believe that our experiences of loss and grief can be a profound turning point in our lives personally and spiritually. Throughout the year Lyall offers several four-week sessions of Grief Circles, when we gather together as a group to help name and speak to this transition in the hope that we will find our way to a more profound integration and gratitude.
