Croydon Park Hotel – 7 Altyre road Croydon Greater London CR9 5AA – 10.00am to 4.30pm

The day was filled with inspiring speakers, music ministry and testimonials from some who had used our services over the past 5 years. Our aim was to inspire, encourage, support and empower our attendees and by God’s grace, together learn even more about this area of Living Loss.

The key speakers throughout the day were experienced in the area of Living Loss within their respective ministries. Our belief is that in spite of the traumatic experience of a loss, there is light at the end of the tunnel.
