It's not easy to talk about death, dying and funerals. But if we neglect these subjects, we can be unprepared for some of the most significant events we will ever have to face - our own death and the deaths of those close to us.
GraveTalk is a resource from the Church of England to help people start thinking and talking about these key topics. It offers 50 unique cards for use in small groups, each with a thought-provoking question to get the conversation started.
This GraveTalk Facilitator's Guide is designed to be used alongside the cards (published separately) and includes:
- Practical advice for before, during and after a GraveTalk event
- A reflection on death and dying
- Useful information about the arrangements that need to be made when someone dies
- A short article on grief and a list of useful websites and books.
Posters and postcards to publicise a GraveTalk event are available to order separately from www.churchprinthub.org
'Very, very easy. Just set the plans, first one we had was in Caffè Nero ...The local press publicised it ... I think about seventeen or eighteen people for the first one ... a really interesting broad range of ages, you know, right across the spectrum ... we then followed that up with one in the library, which again we had some people who’d come to the first one then came to the second one.’ Vicar, Cumbria
'I gave it to them [the PCC] and I went and made coffee while they started discussing it. And I just couldn’t shut them up. They thought it was great. When I came to draw them to a conclusion, they wanted to carry on. They thought it was absolutely brilliant. I was really surprised.’ Vicar, Cumbria
'We did one in our community café, and there were ten or eleven, it was really nice. The conversation flowed, and they liked the questions and there were a lot of comments that it was very helpful.’ Vicar, Hampshire
