Weddings, Baptisms & Funerals



For you Jesus Christ came into the world;
  for you he lived and showed God’s love;
  for you he suffered death on the Cross;
  for you he triumphed over death,
  rising to newness of life;
  for you he prays at God’s right hand:
  all this for you,
  before you could know anything of it.
  In your Baptism,
  the word of Scripture is fulfilled:
  We love because God first loved us.”

These beautiful words are used by the minister in a service of baptism, whether of a baby or of an adult, who has not previously been baptized. When someone is baptized, Christians publicly celebrate the love of God expressed in the birth, life, death and resurrection of Jesus.

Funerals can be held at the church or the minister can lead a service at one of the local crematoria.  A Christian funeral service recognises the sadness of the occasion but celebrates the life of the person who has died.  It will be a service of thanksgiving.

The Methodist Church website gives some background information and provides helpful links about the practicalities of arranging a funeral.

Please contact a local funeral director or the Revd Shaun Sanders to discuss the matter further – by clicking this link.
