The staff at our churches consider it to be a privilege to assist local families when someone has died, whether they or the family are regular church goers. If you live in this parish we want to come alongside you and help and support you. We want to celebrate that person’s life and minister God’s comfort at a sad time.
We conduct many funeral services and most of them are at a crematorium, but we are also happy to have funerals in our church buildings. This is helpful to families if there are large numbers attending (too many for the crematorium) or the service needs to be longer than the crematorium’s 30-minute limit. We are very happy to talk to families about what they are considering, and once a decision has been made to work closely with them and the funeral directors to ensure our loved ones are given a good send-off with a fitting tribute.
