Remembrance and thanksgiving services

Each year Rennie Grove holds Remembrance and Thanksgiving Services. We wouldwellbeingservices like to invite anyone who has experienced the death of a loved one, and who would like to spend some special time remembering them, to join one of our services that are taking place this month.

The services are based on the spiritual care values of the hospice movement and are open to people of all faiths or no faith.

They are both being held at 3pm on Sunday 13 May at Tylers Green Village Hall, Church Road, Penn HP10 8LP and the other at Grove House, Waverley Road, St Albans AL3 5QX (in the grounds of St Albans City Hospital).

Lisa Makey, Family Support Lead at Rennie Grove said: “Some people will still be very sorrowful and desperately missing their loved ones, others will be trying to learn to navigate life without their loved one’s presence and others will be remembering the happy times they shared with the person they have loved and lost. 

“Wherever you are in this time of grieving and bereavement, you are very welcome to come along to one of our Remembrance and Thanksgiving Services. This will give you time to remember your loved one, to reflect on all the experiences you shared together and to celebrate their life.

“The services will consist of music, poems, readings, insights and something for the children too. There will be a time to remember the person we are there for and we encourage you to bring along a photo or something else that reminds you of your loved one to place upon a table.”

The services will start at 3pm and will be followed by a light afternoon tea.
