Funerals

We’ll always be here to help you through one of life’s most difficult times. A Church of England funeral is available to everyone, giving support before, during and after the service, for as long as it’s needed.

To arrange for a Minister to take the Service, whether in Church or at the Crematorium, please discuss your wishes with your funeral directors, who will then contact us, with proposed dates and times, on your behalf. We will help you to prepare a funeral service to give thanks for the unique person you knew and loved in a way that gives comfort and hope.

Our Bereavement Support Team will be with you every step of the way from accompanying the Minister taking the service on the pre-funeral visit to discuss your wishes, through to after the funeral giving as much support as you may feel you need, whether the service is at St. John's or at a Crematorium.

If you wish the Ashes of your loved one to be placed in our Garden of Remembrance, please contact the Church Office.
