If someone you know and love has died, a funeral led by a Church of England minister can be held in our church, in a churchyard or cemetery, by a graveside or at a crematorium. The minister will be there to support you every step of the way.

Christians believe that when we die, God promises that we will be with him in a wonderful place where death and pain are gone forever. Whatever the circumstances of death, these words of hope are a great comfort to those who attend a funeral.

When someone dies, although we can’t see the person we love anymore, Christians believe that through the cross and resurrection of Jesus Christ, we will see that person again. It might be in a very different form, in a very different way.  This is the Christian hope.  


We will spend time with you to plan the arrangements for a funeral and can be flexible to make sure the service meets your individual needs.
