Funerals

Funerals


“Christ has been raised from the dead, the first fruits of those who have died. For since death came through a human being, the resurrection of the dead has also come through a human being; for as all die in Adam, so all will be made alive in Christ”.

 (1 Corinthians 15)

 As Christians we believe that the death and resurrection of Jesus gives us hope and cause for thanksgiving in the face of death. In this faith, we entrust those who have died to the infinite mercy and love of God. The services that we use on these occasions will reflect the wishes of the family as well as local traditions and culture.

Two patterns of funeral service are available. The first either begins or ends with a service at St Paul’s with a short committal at the crematorium or cemetery. The second is a service wholly at the crematorium conducted by the minister of St Paul’s.

 For further information on both of these patterns of funeral service please contact the minister .
