A Flourish! representative told The Church Page:
“The aim of these training modules is to explore the relationship between the theological understanding of suicide and how this translates into pastoral action.
We invite all clergy, youth workers, lay pastoral staff and staff representatives from Churches of all denominations to attend.”
