“In all their distress, he too was distressed”

(Isaiah 63:9)

Bereavement is never easy – whether it’s someone who has lived a long, full, and active life, or someone very young. We never claim to have all the answers but we do hope that as a Christian family we can be there for you to listen and to help out in any way we can.

It can be confusing having to think of the practical steps to be taken in the event of a death – sudden or otherwise. It’s always important that, if the death occurs at home, the Doctor is called in; a local Undertaker should then be contacted immediately and they will advise you how best to handle the legalities and practicalities; then contact the Locum Minister, or ask the Undertaker to do this on your behalf – the Locum Minister will then contact you to arrange a visit for a chat about what has happened and what happens next with regards the Funeral Service.

“Let not your heart be troubled: you believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there you may be also.”

(John 14:1-4)
