Funerals

If you are enquiring here because of bereavement, this will clearly be a difficult time for you.  Funerals and offering care for the bereaved are very important to us at St Andrew’s.  If we can help, please get in touch by emailing followergerrard1@gmail.com or telephone Revd. David Gerrard on 07753417339.

We are able to offer care, support and sympathy to families to support them though the difficult time of losing someone close to them.

God’s love and power extends over all creation.  Every life is precious to God.  Christians have always believed that there is hope in death as in life, and that there is new life in Christ.

You may like to know that people are entitled to a funeral service in church regardless of whether they or their family attended church or not.  Ministers work closely with the funeral director to ensure that the wishes of the family are taken into account, and that the funeral service is a suitable one which reflects the life of the deceased as a unique individual.
