FUNERALS

funerals 2

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 11:25

 

Our Parish 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 Priest.
