Funerals and Memorial Services are one of the most important parts of our ministry here at St Mary’s Church, and we put time and care into the preparation of these services with all those involved. Every one of these services are different, and they are tailor-made for each individual, to be an apt rite of passage during which the bereaved can rightly mourn and reflect upon their own mortality. It is also a time to celebrate and give thanks for your loved-one and commend them into the merciful arms of God, through whose son, Jesus, we have the hope of life beyond the grave.

We also offer pastoral support to those who are bereaved.

If you are organising a Funeral or Memorial Service or would like to receive pastoral support then in the first instance please contact our Lay Pastoral Minister, Gail Townsend on 07792975814 or email [email protected], or use the 'Get in touch' page on this site.
