A funeral marks the end of a person's life here on earth. Family and friends come together to express grief, give thanks for the life lived and commend the person into God's keeping. As Christians we believe that there is hope in death as in life, and that there is new life in Jesus after death. This faith is expressed through the hymns and prayers of the funeral service.
If you are visiting these pages after suffering a bereavement, we would like to offer our condolences.

More likely you may have already been in touch with a funeral director to undertake the arrangements for you. The contact details of our local firms are here.
In October we will contact you to invite you to a special All Saintstide evening service at the beginning of November where we remember the faithful departed.
