Funeral ministry

Funeral ministry

May you know God’s  loving care at this time. 

The death of someone you love is profoundly difficult and planning a funeral can seem a daunting task especially when you are grieving.

Our Ministers can help you put together a service which reflects your cherished memories. It does not have to include hymns, and instead you can have music which reminds you of the person who meant a great deal to you. 

It would include prayers for all the family, a Bible reading chosen to suit your situation, and a closing prayer of committal and commendation as we place your Loved One into God’s safe-keeping. 

The funeral can take place at the Crematorium as either a burial or cremation, and the Church of England fee for this is currently £199 (2020).  

There is also the possibility of a service in church, which can take place before or after burial / cremation. In addition, a short service can be held when ashes are buried at a time when you feel this is right for you and your family. 

If you are considering a Christian Funeral, please contact Rev. Mandy Hewson on 01245 287710 or at mandy@churchoos.org.uk

As a first step she will arrange to visit you and your family at home to talk through the service in detail.  

May you know God’s  loving care at this time.
