t funerals we give thanks for the life of a loved one, and we commit them into God’s care.

Members of St Andrew’s ministry team are pleased to lead a funeral service for anyone who lives in the parish. It doesn’t matter if your loved one did not go to church. We believe in a loving God, and our church at St Andrew’s extends that love to all.

We understand that some deaths can be traumatic, distressing or unexpected. The Church has special funerals for children, or after sudden or violent deaths, including suicide. Please talk to us about what is possible.

You can choose whether the service takes place in the church (followed, or preceded, by burial or cremation) or at a crematorium. We have a Garden of Memory for the burial of ashes.

Please ask your funeral director to contact our Parish Office to discuss arrangements.

Here is a public quote from someone who attended a funeral at St Andrew’s.

We attended a celebration of the life of an old friend. Impressive buildings with large grounds, unexpectedly large carpark.
Impressive audio visual set up which meant everyone in a large congregation could feel close to what was happening at the front. Diverse clergy all of whom took part in the service which was a good true reflection of the life of our friend.

Also, good facilities for the meal served afterwards which helped to ensure we all left the church with happy memories.”

At St Andrew’s we not only have experienced ministers to help you but a dedicated team of pastoral assistants. They are trained to support individuals and families through times of bereavement.
