Funerals

Jesus said, 'Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted'.

We want our church to be a blessing to those who mourn.

We take about 25-30 funerals each year and in our regular services the whole church

prays for the people who have died as well as those who mourn them.

Most of those funerals include a service in church either before or after 

the cremation or burial.  However, we sometimes conduct funerals at the crematorium

without a church service.

Sometimes people think they are somehow 'not allowed' to have a church funeral.

This is not the case.  We often conduct funerals for people who haven't been to church

for a long time. We try to be as accommodating as we can about the music you wish to play

or any poems and other texts that you wish to use.

If you are grieving for a loved one and are wondering whether a church led funeral

might be right for you, why not contact the vicar for a chat?  He won't be offended if you 

decide, after all, to have your funeral somewhere else.  Remember, he will be trying to work out

how he can be a blessing and a comfort to you as you mourn.

At the end of the service, people often need a place to gather and exchange memories.

One venue that could be considered for this is the West End of our church where we have held

such receptions before.  Click here for more information.
