Gravetalk

What is GraveTalk?

  • GraveTalk is a simple way to help people get together and talk about death, dying and funerals.
  • It is a format that has been developed by the Church of England. 
  • It has been tried and tested over the last few years and has proved successful and popular.

 

So, what happens?

  • People arrive and are offered a warm drink.
  • There is some time to mingle and chat.
  • There is then a formal welcome and a prayer is said.
  • We then split into groups of 3 or 4. Each group has a pile of cards.  
  • Each card has a question on it. The cards are used to start conversations.
  • The questions help us to talk about how we feel when we lose a loved one.
  • These feelings include what it makes us think about God or heaven.
  • Nobody tells you what to think or what to feel. 
  • The idea is that by talking about it, we may get a better understanding of what we are thinking and feeling.

 

So, is it for me?

  • We hope it is something that helps anybody who is thinking about a loved one who has died.
  • We don't mind what your religious beliefs are, or if you have not got any.
  • We are organising this in the hope that it will help people, bring people together and be a comfort and a blessing to people who are mourning.
