How we operate

Apt Worship in Times of Grief and Sorrow
Saturday 17 November 2018
10.30 am - 3.45 pm
Cost: £10 or £5 for Praxis members
Bridge Community Church, Rider Street, Leeds, LS9 7BQ
Tragedy and loss, whether sudden or expected, is what happens to other people. For some reason we never expect it to happen to us. Helen Bent and Robin Greenwood speak from firsthand experience as both worshippers and worship leaders. How do we personally find God in the face of terminal illness and death? What happens in the face of unexpected tragedy or a problem in society? What is apt worship in the face of the unthinkable? And how do we minister sensitively to people at points of crisis and on through the long path of ongoing grief and sorrow.
This will be a useful day for pastoral workers and bereavement visitors as well as worship leaders, ordained and lay.
Speakers: Helen Bent and Robin Greenwood
