Funerals

This is a hard and bewildering time. But it's also a time often filled with fond memories and a desire to say thank you for your loved one.

As Christians we believe that death is not the end of our story. The death and resurrection of Jesus show that life with God is the end of our story, and death is a stage on our journey to this fullness of life.

We work with families in planning funeral services. We are delighted for you to have a funeral service in any of our churches, whether or not the person who died came to church or not. 

In our planning the service we will work with you to ensure the funeral reflects the person who has died. You will be able to choose music and readings. Often a friend or relative gives a short tribute.

We're really pleased to hear from you if you'd like to enquire more about any of these matters.
