NEW STEPS – Weekly Bereavement Friendship Group

Where: Rayleigh Baptist Church
High Street

When: Wednesdays 1pm – 3pm

This is a friendly group offering those who have been bereaved the chance to meet others who share and understand the experience of loss and are looking to socialise and explore new interests together.

It takes just one New Step to have a friendly chat and make new friends. There’s no need to book simply drop in – whether you want to take part in our activities and outings or just fancy a chat there will always be a warm welcome waiting for you with a hot cuppa and a biscuit and sometimes cake!

Feel free to just come along or if you would like further information please call RRAVS on 01268 772 796 or email
