As a clergy team we are pleased and honoured to be asked to take a funeral. You can have a funeral for your loved one at Christ Church, followed by a committal at the crematorium or cemetery, or a service at the crematorium or cemetery only. The funeral director you choose will arrange in detail the service with the clergy, so the pressure is lifted from you. The priest or minister taking the service will want to visit you at home, to hear about the person who has died and to gather stories and memories from you for his/her address on the day. This visit is often a special time for the family when there is laughter as well as tears.
