Greetings everyone

We are looking forward to meeting you and so happy that you have found our GriefShare Recovery Program.

Please note that the GriefShare program will be meeting virtually online until further notice. Please contact Patty Vandekamp to register and for further details. Once you have registered you will be provided with a link you can use each Friday night for our meetings.

We ALL face struggles at one time or another AND we need the help of God and others to face them. If you are looking for HOPE amidst the real-life struggles you are facing right now, we welcome you to join us in one of our Christ-centered recovery programs. They are safe places to discuss real-life issues without fear of being judged or condemned, and where your identity will remain confidential.

Group time:
- The GriefShare group will join together on line
- 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

Please note:
- GriefShare may be cancelled due to inclement weather (when in person meetings begin)
- Please contact Bethany Church at 905-937-5300 for possible group cancellations.
- There are no GriefShare meetings on a Friday night before a holiday weekend such as Family Day, Easter-Good Friday, Victoria Day and Thanksgiving weekend. Please see the schedule for details.

We want to make sure you are safe! Welcome to GriefShare at Bethany. We hope you will be blessed by attending this program.

The following guidelines will apply when in Church GriefShare group meetings resume:

Our priority is your safety. In accordance with the City of St. Catharines, Bethany has adopted a Mask Policy, requiring that anyone entering our building must wear a mask.

Please note attendance and contact information must be taken by the group leader at all on-site meetings and church events. There will be a sign-in sheet available and everyone must self-screen for COVID-19 symptoms.

Physical distancing of six feet will be encouraged and followed.

Each room has a maximum capacity posted, including restrooms.

Our leader will ensure the room layout supports physical distancing.

No food or drink will be served but you can bring your own food and drink for personal use.
