We understand that when a loved one has died it’s a very difficult time. There are all the emotions surrounding grief and loss, but there are also lots of practical things that have to be sorted out. We would like to help you if you can. Your first port of call should be a Funeral Director, who will be able to help and guide you through the process. If you would like to hold your service in the church or would like one of our ministers to take the service at the crematorium or cemetery, let the Funeral Director know that and we will contact them. A date for the funeral will be arranged which suits you, and them, and us. The minister who will take the service will then get in touch with you to arrange a date to visit you to plan the service.
If you would like to inter the ashes of your loved one into an existing grave in our cemetery, or in our garden of remembrance, then please come along to our Office Hour which happens in church almost every Thursday evening from 7-8pm. (If you’re unable to make it, contact us via phone or email to arrange something else). You can also Click Here to find more help with planning a funeral.

If you are an adult who is interested in baptism, we would love to chat with you. Come along to one of our Sunday services and we’ll take it from there.
