We're sorry if you've had a bereavement and will do all we can to support and help. If you would simply like to talk to someone at this stage, please
to arrange this.
If you are considering a funeral, your first point of contact should be through a Funeral Director, who will help you with all the necessary paperwork, be able to give you advice on the type of Funerals available to you, and book the Minister on your behalf.
If you decide to have a church service, your funeral director will pass us your details, and a member of our Ministry or Lay Team will arrange to meet you to hear about the person you have lost and start to plan the service.
Christian funerals can be an occasion of both sadness and sometimes great joy.
