Grief Counselling

The HOPE Grief support programme at Bethel works in partnership with West & Coe, highly respected Funeral Directors in Barking and Dagenham and the South East and initiators of this support service.

It runs over six weeks and aims to offer support, guidance and education to those who are going through the grieving process. The course evolved as a response to the distinct lack of Grief Support and lack of knowledge and understanding of this process being offered by local services to people in the area.  Referrals to join the course are received from West & Coe Funeral Directors, Local Doctor’s & Health Centre’s or by word of mouth from others who have attended the course.

All of our facilitators have been through a training programme, educating them in understanding the grief process, how to empathise with those going through this process and the support that can be offered to help those on the grief journey.


If you or someone you know has experienced the loss of a loved one and feel that you would value the opportunity to be part of our next course then please contact us on or by calling the church office on 020 8593 2241. We will then give you details of the dates for our next course.
