Seasons for Growth
There is an increasing demand for the Seasons for
Growth adult program. Many people simply want
to know more about dealing with loss and grief.
Sometimes it is because they have experienced a
death or family break-up; however people are also
recognising that grief can be associated with lots of
changes, and that this program is useful in dealing
with these. Frequently parents want to participate
in the Adult Program simply because their children
are in a Seasons for Growth group at school.
The Diocese of Maitland-Newcastle co-ordinates
the Seasons for Growth program in the Hunter.
Companioning Young People Training Newcastle,
20-21 June Newcastle, 21-22 November Newcastle;
Companioning Adults Training, 25-26 July Newcastle.
Exploring the Seasons of Grief Adult Group 7-8 August,
1-2 November Newcastle. Bookings are essential.
