Funerals at St Giles
It is inevitable that death touches all of us, and the Church has 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 need not have the final word and that eternal life is available to us all.
Funerals are arranged through your chosen funeral director and a vicar will then be in contact to arrange a visit as soon as he and the directors have finalised the date and time of the service.
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.
“I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life."
