Every blade of grass and piece of concrete in this country is served by the Church of England. Wherever you live, you are within a Church of England parish, and the church is there to journey with you throughout your life.
A funeral marks the end of a human life on earth. A service in either church or crematorium provides an opportunity for family and friends to come together to pray, to remember, to express their grief and to commend the person who has died into God’s keeping. The words of the service provide reassurance and comfort, and remind us that whoever we are, we are loved, welcomed, forgiven and cared for by God.
The clergy and church family will support you through the process of arranging the funeral, and we will support you with our friendship and prayers as appropriate afterwards. You may like to visit this website to find help and advice too.
