A funeral is used to mark the end of a person's life here on earth. Family and friends come together to express grief, give thanks for the life lived and commend the person into God's keeping. These can be a small, quiet ceremony or a large occasion in a packed church.
Everyone who lives within the parish of St. Barnabas (Bewsey Dallam, Sankey Bridges and Whitecross) is entitled to a funeral service in St. Barnabas Church by the Vicar.
The funeral service can take place either in Church or at the Crematorium. Please discuss these details with your Funeral Director, who will make contact with the Vicar to make the necessary arrangements, and then either the Crematorium or Cemetery on your behalf.
Every year around the first weekend in November we hold a special evening Memorial Service at 6:30 pm for those who have lost loved ones in that year. Candles are lit for each of the people we are mourning, and their names are read out. We will send you an invitation to this service nearer the time. We do hope you will be able to attend.
