Funerals

As Christians, we believe that each and every person is uniquely made in the image of God. So, a Church of England funeral is a good place to give thanks for all that was special about the person you knew and loved.

A Church of England funeral can be held in a place that you choose. This could be at Orsett, Bulphan or Horndon Church, a crematorium or a green burial ground.

A church funeral can also include unique details, whether that is what people wear, the music that is played, readings that are chosen or simply a photograph at the front.

The first person you need to talk to after a loved one has died is a local funeral director, who will then contact Rev’d Sue, if you wish to have a Christian funeral. She will then arrange to meet you to talk about the person you want to give thanks for and work out what is possible for the service.

The message at all Church of England funerals, wherever they happen, is one of hope. Although there is sadness because someone you know and love has died, in every Church of England funeral there will also be a message of hope in life after death.
