The Bereavement Journey
A Place To Talk
Starting Sunday, February 4, 2024
from 7-9 PM on Zoom
Finally, a resource to help those who are grieving in your church and community.
You are invited to join us for 7 sessions as we go through The Bereavement Journey!
Our District Nazarene Discipleship International (NDI) board from Canada Central District (CCD) is proud to be offering this amazing resource developed in the UK.
Spaces are very limited
Grief is hard.
Death can impact all of life.
7 Sessions of films and discussion
for anyone bereaved anytime
Your hosts are Pastor Charmaine Kofler and Pastor Cindy Stavropoulos.
Sunday, February 4- March 17
on Zoom from 7-9 pm
FREE (made possible by the Canada Central District NDI)
Participants receive guest manuals
Our vision is that you can use this course in your community to support those who are grieving. Go through the journey, and then you can sign up for future trainings and learn more about hosting your own TBJ for your church and community.
Please note this is designed to be a community resource - not just for church goers. It's a great way to serve those in your neighbourhood.

What Participants Have Said
I have found the Bereavement Journey incredibly useful and supportive and I can see a way forward, thanks to you and the team.
You have no idea how important this is to me (you probably do, to be fair) and how much strength I've gained from the sessions. In particular the group time after the films has been so useful.
I really feel that I've turned a corner as a result of what I've learned. And I now also know that I'm not losing my mind, that this process is going to take its own course, and that a set back is to be expected and that I can survive it.
You can be certain that I'll recommend the course. In fact, I already have.
