The funeral of a loved one acknowledges the closing of a human life on earth. A funeral service is an opportunity for family and friends to gather in a parish church or crematorium to express their grief, give thanks to God and celebrate a life that has completed its journey through this life, and to commend the soul of the departed into God’s eternal keeping.
Anyone is entitled to a funeral in either St Chad’s or St Alkmund’s. St Chad’s is especially suitable for funerals expecting large numbers of guests. In addition, our clergy often conduct services at the cemetery or crematorium or memorial services.
In the first instance, please contact your Undertaker or to arrange a pastoral visit from a member of St Chad’s Church please contact the church office, telephone 01743 365478.
