Whether sudden or expected, the death of a loved one can leave you with an overwhelming sense of loss and despair. We are here to support
At times like this, many feelings play on the emotions. With the pain of separation there may be relief that a time of waiting is over. There may be bitterness; worry about the future. Sadly there may be guilt at words said and things not done.
To you - in the loneliness of grief - come words of invitation and comfort. Jesus Christ says, "Come those who are weary and heavy laden and I will with give you rest." Matthew 11:28
A funeral marks the close of a human life on earth. It is the opportunity for friends and family to express their grief, to give thanks for the life which has now completed its journey in this world and to commend the person into God’s keeping.
Here at All Saints, like other churches, we would want to offer you every possible support during this difficult time. We would want to work with you to provide a service that can reflect the personality of the person who has died and the circumstances of their death. Together we need to hold within God’s love our feelings of grief and gratitude, joy and sadness.
How do I arrange a funeral at All Saints?
Usually the undertaker will contact the church or the vicar and make the arrangements for you. It is important that they do this before fixing the date and time of the service, as clergy are not always available. You have the option to have your loved one either buried or cremated and the undertaker will help you with that decision.
Please don’t hesitate to contact the church and speak to Revd Jeremy Putnam if you would like to discuss this further. (01872 261944).
