Funerals

A funeral service marks the end of a person’s life here on earth. Family and friends come together to express grief, to support one another, celebrate a life lived and loved, and commend the person into God’s keeping. Funerals can be small, quiet ceremonies or larger occasions; in all events we offer a professional service sensitive to the needs of the family.

At St Matthew’s we believe that 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 life and that there is new life in Christ after death. As the parish church of Silksworth, we are here for you at a difficult time. If you choose us to help we will provide a bespoke service to meet your requirements either in St Matthew’s Church itself at the crematorium or cemetery chapel or by the graveside.

In time you may also want to add the persons name to our book of remembrance within the church.

After the service we remain here to support you whenever you need us. If we can help in any way then please contact our Vicar David
