It is a
privilege to be part of significant events in people’s lives, and offer
stability, support and hope in changing times. It is our experience that a
funeral service can be an occasion of thanksgiving for the life of a loved one
and bring hope, comfort and help to those who are bereaved. If you have lost a
loved one, we would like to offer support to you and your family in whatever
manner is most appropriate, now and in the future.
Jesus said, “I am the resurrection and the life.The one who believes in
me will live, even though they die” John
Priest will work closely with you and your chosen Funeral Director. Canon John will
meet with you to plan a service which reflects your wishes for the funeral
service, so that on the day it is as personal and appropriate as possible.
After the service we will be in touch as much or as little as you like to offer
ongoing support and care, mindful of individual preferences and yet offering
all we can as you face the future.
For parishioners, or
where there has been a close connection with the church, ashes may be buried in
the Garden of Remembrance following a cremation service. This is known as an
interment, and is very short service where Canon John says some prayers and few
words of encouragement before the ashes are buried.
For any further guidance, do please contact Canon John, the Parish
