We value funeral ministry and see it as an integral part of the ministry and mission of the local church.
It’s a vital part of us being the Church of England in serving members of our communities at a time of great need and bringing the love and comfort of God
We work in close collaboration with families and funeral directors when you are faced with bereavement. The Rector, Reverend Andrew Knight or another member of the ministry team liaises with individuals and families to create a service fitting for each person
All members of the ministry team at St Giles work in close collaboration with the funeral directors.
At St Giles we offer those bereaved the opportunity to attend a regular ‘Memorial service’. These happen four times throughout the year. In November of each year all those who have been bereaved in the past twelve months are invited to attend our annual ‘All Souls Service’.
