A funeral marks the close of a human life on earth. It is the opportunity for friends and family to express their grief, to give thanks for the life which has now completed its journey in this world and to commend the person into God’s keeping.
A funeral service in the Church of England – whether in a parish church or a crematorium chapel – may be very short and quiet with only a few members of the family present, or an occasion of great solemnity with music, hymns and a packed church. Whatever you choose, the words and actions all speak of a loving God and the preciousness to him of every human being.
If you would like to talk about arranging a funeral, get in touch with Revds Alan or Catherine and they will contact you and visit you at home.
