Drop-in bereavement cafe

On the last Thursday of the month we hold a free drop-in group called Budleigh Friends and all are welcome. There is no need to book.

Budleigh Friends is a support group aimed at everyone experiencing bereavement or grief and looking to chat through the difficult times. 

Bereavement affects everyone differently and no two losses are the same. 

If you are:

  • Looking to meet other people socially and just chat
  • Finding it difficult following the loss of a loved one
  • Want practical help such as how to deal with admin and estates
  • Are facing death soon and want to know how to plan ahead
  • Want signposting to other specialist services and free counselling

Then feel free to drop in. Refreshments are free. The next dates are as follows:

28th July 2022 – 11am – 1pm – Gingerbread Cafe, Budleigh

25th August 2022 – 11am – 1pm – Gingerbread Cafe, Budleigh

29th September 2022 – 11am – 1pm – Gingerbread Cafe, Budleigh

We are grateful for Chris and the Gingerbread team for helping host these events and supporting local businesses.

Set in glorious and unspoilt East Devon, in an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the parishes in the Raleigh Mission Community extend from the Jurassic Coast along both banks of the River Otter to the southern edge of Woodbury Common and its pebblebed heathlands. Our church buildings bear witness to an unbroken tradition of Christian witness and care for the local communities and their people from pre-Saxon times.
