May we begin by expressing our sympathy for your loss.
No two Christian funerals are alike, so we want to work with you to help you remember your loved one in an appropriate and personal way.
This will typically involve at least one meeting with the person who will lead the funeral service to make arrangements.
Jesus said, “Blessed are those who mourn for they will be comforted.” [Matthew 5:4]
However, your first step is to find an undertaker and to express a preference for a Christian funeral at one of our churches. The Undertaker will then co-ordinate dates with the various people involved, and pass your details to whoever is leading the service so that they can finalise arrangements with you.
Please note that most of our churches have a policy of asking the family to split any collection taken during or after the service between the church and another charity. This helps us ensure that we can continue making our buildings available for funeral services.
- The website UK Funeral Options has a lot of information that will help you plan your funeral, including a list of local undertakers.
- To help you choose hymns for the funeral service, we’ve compiled a list of funeral-songs that work well at funerals, but if the ones you want aren’t on the list, that’s fine – just discuss it with whoever is leading the service.
- If you have any queries about the arrangements for a funeral, please contact us.
