The passing of a loved one can of course be one of the most profound human experiences. It often involves deep grief, and a sense of lostness and confusion - amongst so many other feelings.
The funeral service itself is often a chance to say 'goodbye', to say 'thank you' and to celebrate a life and all that it has meant.
As a church leader, I have experience of leading funerals. I always find it one of the greatest honours to be asked to lead funerals and services of remembrance - to honour the life of someone who has passed. I always work with families to craft a service that uniquely remembers and celebrates the life of their loved one. This can, but does not need to, include 'religious elements' - each service is crafted in the way that the person's loved ones would want. I will take time to visit the family and listen carefully to what you say about your loved one in designing a service that reflects your memories and wishes.
If you would like to explore my involvement in a funeral for a loved one, please feel free to contact me directly, or speak to your funeral director who I will always liaise with closely.
I’m sure you’ll find my services helpful and inspiring. Get in touch to learn more.
