At present, there have been no changes to regulations however Covid infections are on the rise once again and sensible precautions are recommended

Face coverings are no longer mandatory in any setting but are recommended in enclosed or crowded places, particularly where you come into contact with people you don’t normally meet.
Social distancing in a place of worship is now a personal choice. People are encouraged to respect other attendees and those working who may wish to adopt a more cautious approach.
Regular use of hand sanitiser and/or hand washing is also still recommended.

Funerals in Church

You may have watched the funeral service for Queen Elizabeth, we want you to know that C of E funeral services are available for everyone. Absolutely everyone, whatever their lives have brought to them.

You don’t have to be a churchgoer!

Traditional service in church? We can help you.

Split service in Church and at the Crematorium? We can help you

Service at the crem? We can help you.

Memorial after a direct cremation? We can help you.

The content of any service for your loved one will be carefully tailored to suit your family and your loved one. Traditional elements, modern elements, personal words shared with you and for you.

We aren’t just there for a service or event, we’re there for for you during your period of mourning and afterwards too. Church is a community of support and hope. We understand that grief is a journey and can help you find your way through with prayer, conversation and special services to remember your loved one down the years.

It’s not expensive to have a funeral or memorial in church, or to have a minister lead your service at the crematorium. If we don’t know you we will get to know you, listen to you and help you say goodbye.
