The Memphis Chapter of The Compassionate Friends meets on the first Thursday of every month from 7:00 pm until 9:00 pm at Hope Presbyterian Church, 8500 Walnut Grove Rd,  Cordova. We recommend you use Entrance 1 on the South (Walnut Grove) side of the building.  Go through the double glass doors and there will be a staircase on the right, go to the second floor, we meet in Room 222/224. We ask that for your first meeting that you arrive 10 or 15 minutes early to get registered.  Our meetings are very informal, and you do not have to speak if you choose not to.  There is no religious affiliation and there are no membership dues.  Please bring a picture of your child for our picture table. Our meetings are for bereaved parents, grandparents and adult siblings.
