The death of a loved one is a distressing, confusing and lonely time. Many people choose to have a service at one of our churches before, or after, a cremation or burial. We can also help you plan a service of thanksgiving at some time after the funeral.

We work with our local funeral directors to ensure that the emotional, pastoral and practical needs of bereaved families are met in the lead up to the funeral and during the funeral itself.

After the Funeral

Following the funeral, we are also here to support you if you need us. Please ask one of our Pastoral Care Team to visit you using this form.

Each year on or around All Souls Day (2nd November) we hold a special service to remember all departed loved ones to which families are invited. Many find this service a great comfort. 

What do I do next?

Your funeral director can arrange things with us or you can contact us directly if you prefer. We will visit you at home to talk things through.
