Funerals and Memorial Services

What happens when someone dies?

Pedestal flower arrangement with lilies

The role of the church can be very important for the bereaved. The Vicar and other members of the Ministry Team will always be here to help, guide and advise as well as being a listening ear.

We are here to help both with spiritual as well as practical matters.

In the first instance, you will need to contact a funeral director of your choice.

For more information please contact the Vicar.

For information about funeral/memorial service flowers, please see the Flower Arrangers page.
