Light up a Life 2020 Order of Service

The death of someone important to us is often one of the most difficult things that we have to face in life, and the emotions and responses that we have at these times can often feel very confusing and overwhelming – and perhaps more so in the midst of the current COVID-19 pandemic, with all the uncertainties it brings.

We have put together some information about living with loss after a bereavement and more specifically how our grief -and the way we grieve – might be impacted by the current COVID-19 pandemic. We suggest ways in which you might be able to look after yourself and others during these exceptional times.
