Christians believe that the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ gives them hope and cause for thanksgiving in the face of death. A Methodist funeral service acknowledges this hope and offers the bereaved the opportunity to remember their loved one's life and offer them into God's care.
Taking funerals is an important part of our ministers’ work. Our minister is available to lead a personalised service which can either take place here at Gracious Street, or at the crematorium or cemetery. They will also offer comfort and support both before and after the funeral itself. If you would like the assistance of a minister please contact them direct or ask the funeral director. It is important the minister is consulted before booking the date and time of a funeral.
The Methodist Church has produced some resources concerning death and dying, which are available here, that you may find useful.
