The Unitarian Church provides funeral services in the church and at other locations such as funeral homes or crematoria. There is no requirement to be a member of the church in order to have a funeral service in the Church.
The church has its roots in Christianity, but we make no presumptions concerning the beliefs of others. We meet with and listen to the family of the deceased. Based on our extensive knowledge of different religions and philosophies, we assist the family in creating a funeral service that will reflect the life and the beliefs of the deceased and the needs of family members.
The service usually takes the form of reading, prayers and music, as well as giving the family and individuals the opportunity to speak about the deceased person. The funeral service is to honour and celebrate the life of the person who has died, to comfort the bereaved and to support them as they say goodbye to the deceased person.
The church has gladly provided memorial services for people to remember their late family members and friends. The church is also gaining a reputation as a place where groups and organisations can hold inclusive memorial services for deceased colleagues. In recent years, organisations have also celebrated significant events in their company history in the church.
If you would like to arrange a Unitarian service, please inform the undertaker or call the church office at 01 478 0638 or the Minister at 01 838 8808 or 085 718 0599. Rev. Spain can be contacted by direct e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
