Companions of the Wolds


We are a group who meet monthly to offer support to ladies who have

been bereaved (in whatever way) and who may be finding a need to talk

and to be alongside others to regain confidence. The ladies come from

different backgrounds, some are regular worshippers and some I have met

through my funeral ministry. Several of our pastoral visitors assist me with

this group and they are all trained in Christian listening and are shortly going to undertake further specific training related to bereavement.


We see it asour way of serving God through beingthere for others at a difficult time in their lives.


In March the Companions met at theViking Centre Claxby to make Easter

wreaths and resurrection crosses. We had an enjoyable afternoon thanks to

the expert input from Moira, although she wasn’t well enough to join us in



In April the Companions have been invited to join us at our Lent lunch, and

also on 9th April to make Easter eggs at The Chocolate Drop Willingham Woods. There is a small cost for this trip of £5- £10 depending upon the size of egg. I produce a quarterly newsletter with details of our meetings and am always happy to hear of anyone who would like to join us or receive a copy of the programme of events.
