Serving God... Growing Together... Reaching Out



Bereavement is a very distressing but common experience, it brings to light all manner of different feelings and emotions. Each of us act and respond in different ways to the loss of a loved one.

Below are suggestions which could offer practical, spiritual and emotional help.

Funerals today can be very flexible and should reflect something of the character of the person who has died. Readings, poems, hymns, music, prayers and reflections, can all be tailored and to some extent personalised.

For more advice on what to choose for the service, please contact the Rector.

Funerals should be a time to remember and give thanks for a life, and then to commend that life into God's eternal love, hope and promises.

There are a number of different possibilities for the funeral service, please contact us for more information.
