Funerals

If you are reading this page because you have just lost someone you love, may God uphold and carry you.

It would be a privilege to be involved in that person’s funeral, whether you want a funeral in Christ Church or a funeral elsewhere taken by Tom Parsons, our Vicar.    

There are lots of advantages of a funeral service in church: the extra time it gives, the atmosphere, the size (big enough to seat hundreds, but perfectly fine for just a few).  There will be many factors involved in deciding the best location.

When planning a funeral, it is usually best if it is taken by the Minister of the Parish where the person lived.  Funeral directors will guide you to the right person.  See parish map. 

If you would like Christ Church, or Tom, to be involved, tell your chosen funeral director that’s what you want and they will contact us.  We work regularly with all the local firms.

"Jesus said: 'I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live even though he dies; and whoever lives and believes in me will never die. Do you believe this?'" (John 11:25)
