Hello, and Welcome to GriefShare!
Normally, our first night, ‘Registration Night’, involves getting a copy of the GriefShare participant’s guide/workbook, along with filling out a registration form, and signing our group guidelines, before beginning the meeting.
Since, on our first night, we can’t be together in person, it means that we’re unable to get those things done, before we begin on Monday, January 25, 2021. To give you time to complete the registration process and provide you with the program materials, we’ve arranged for you to be able to do so at the Lakeshore St. Andrews’ church office, beginning on Monday, January 4, 2021.
After registering online, which guarantees your place in the group, you’ll be able to call the church to schedule a time to stop by – or you can choose to just drop by during business hours – to complete the registration process.
At that time, you’ll be asked to pay the $25 registration fee, fill out a participant’s registration form, read the group guidelines, and sign them. This indicates you understand that the group discussions are to remain confidential. When you leave the church office, you’ll have your own copy of the participant’s guide/workbook, along with a copy of the group guidelines.
Lakeshore St. Andrews’ Church (LSA) office hours are:
Monday – Thursday from 9am – 4pm
Friday from 9am – 1pm
The registration fee can be paid using cash, debit, or credit, and, if you’re registering from outside of the area, you can contact the church to arrange payment over the phone or through e-transfer.
(If the church hours of operation absolutely don’t work with your schedule, we may be able to make other arrangements; perhaps have you pick up a workbook and complete the paperwork at one of the group facilitator’s homes, outside of church business hours, or mail the participant’s guide to your home, if you’re not from the area, and email you the forms to complete and return before January 25th. Please see the contact information provided.)
We’ve had to make adjustments to information in this listing in the past, and may have to do so again. As long as you are registered online for our upcoming group at and have provided an email address and phone number, we will be able to reach you if anything changes before our start date.
For any additional information, or if you have any questions, you can contact:
Dave Francis, Congregational Care Pastor at 519-979-8082 x217 or

*For returning group members: After paying the registration fee, the first time you take part in a 13-session group, you are encouraged to come back a second or even a third time, and it’s free of charge.
