God’s love and power extend over all creation. Every life, including our own, is precious to God. Christians have always believed that there is hope in death as in life, and that there is new life in Christ over death. Hope is at the heart of the Christian faith and at the heart of every funeral service that we arrange. Please contact us if you would like us to help. You may find the information on funerals on the Church of England website helpful: www.churchofengland.org
