Funerals at St Giles
It is inevitable that death touches all of us, and the Church offers an important
place in supporting people through this difficult time.
A funeral marks the close of a human life on earth.
As well as being a time to say goodbye to our loved ones and express our grief,
it is also the opportunity for friends and family to celebrate and give thanks
for the life that has ended and commend the person into God’s keeping.
We can also thank God that because of the death and resurrection of Jesus –
death does not have the final word and eternal life is available to us all.
We’re here for you for as long as you feel you need support.
Funerals are arranged through your chosen funeral director. Please ask them to contact St Giles and the Vicar will then be in touch to arrange a visit once a date and time for the service has been finalised.
During the Covid-19 pandemic, there are public health limits on funeral services. Please ask your funeral director to contact the Vicar for the latest updates. We will be offering to arrange memorial services for bereaved families when it is safe to do so.

“I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life."
Life events happen to all of us. From our own baptisms, celebrating our union with our partners through the sanctity of marriage, the baptism of our children and to the days when we say goodbye to loved ones, faith plays a significant role in helping us to celebrate for to cope with loss.
We at St Giles are here to help you through these big events.
