Funerals

If someone is nearing the end of their life, the family may wish the Vicar or another member of the clergy to spend some time with the dying person and pray with them. We consider it a privilege to be able to accompany people and their families at this important and difficult time, and seek to offer sensitive pastoral care.

Funerals are always arranged in partnership with a local funeral director and we are happy to put families in touch with a firm who will support them professionally and sensitively. The ministers at All Saints can lead funeral services both in church and at local cemeteries and crematoria. We will always spend time with the family of the deceased to help us to make the funeral as personal as possible and offer ongoing support and care where that is appropriate.
