What's on‎ > ‎


The truth is we are all going to die, but for many years the western world has been somewhat reticent when it comes to talking about death.

For those with big questions about death, dying and funerals, having someone to talk to can be invaluable. But how do you start those conversations, and with whom?

The Church of England has been helping people think about these questions for centuries and has recently produced a new way to help us think and talk about such difficult things.  GraveTalk is a one session café space designed to help us begin conversations about death, dying and funerals, whether you have a faith or not.  There is free tea, coffee and cake and after a chance to mix socially with others.  We then invite you to break into groups of three to six people around a table to start the discussion, helped along by GraveTalk conversation cards, covering 5 different areas (Life, Death, Society, Funerals and Grief).

We will be hosting two GraveTalk café spaces in Holy Trinity Rudgwick on Tuesday 15 May, one at 10.30am and the other at 7.30pm (each one lasting an hour and a half).  Everyone is very welcome to join us to start the conversation about those big questions.  No need to book or let us know you are coming, just turn up – We look forward to seeing you.
