What is a Bereavement Café?

Volunteers from Holy Trinity Church Bengeo have set up a Bereavement Café to offer to people a place to meet and connect with others who have had similar experiences to their own. It is a safe place to speak openly about our experiences, or simply just meet up for a coffee or a cup of tea.

Anyone who has experienced the loss of someone close to them, no matter how long ago, is welcome to the Bereavement Café. It is free to attend and you are welcome to drop in at any time during the evening. The atmosphere is very relaxed and informal, just like a real café, with hot drinks and refreshments.

Visit our Bereavement Café in Bengeo
