Funerals & Memorial Services

COVID 19 

Under the current restrictions we are sorry but the ususal arrangements for funeral cannot be offered in the way we would all like. 

Funerals may now only happen at the Crematorium or at the graveside. Only immediate family members can attend (if the crematorium allows) – that is, spouse or partner, parents and children, keeping their distance in the prescribed way.

It may be possible to have a memorial service in church at a later date when the current crisis is over and restrictions on social gatherings have been relaxed. 

Please talk with the Vicar, Revd Ian MacKarill, if you have any questions:  01665 830281   rev@mackarill.co.uk

Thought of the Week

If we understand suffering to be whenever we are not in control, then we see why some form of suffering is absolutely necessary to teach us how to live beyond the illusion of control and to give that control back to God and the flow of reality.
