For many people the subject of death is a very sensitive issue. When a loved one dies we are in a state of shock and bewilderment. Over the last few years I have noticed a huge increase in numbers attending funerals and more often than not the crematorium cannot accommodate such large gatherings and many people end up standing outside which is upsetting and unnecessary. Please don’t let that happen to you and your family – tell the Funeral Director you would like to use the church for the service.
The funeral would be a service of thanksgiving with a personal tribute to the person’s life. Obviously I hope we never need to meet under sad circumstances but if we did I want you to know that your church cares very much and wants to support and comfort you.
