Funerals at St Bartholomew's Church
If you are reading this page it might be because a family or friend has recently died. We are very sorry. As a church we want to pray for you and help you to know the comfort that Jesus brings. At the bottom of this page is a short video which tells you more about that comfort. To find out more general information about Church of England Funerals click here...
Arranging A Funeral
If you want to organise a funeral the first step is contact a firm of Funeral Directors. Many of our funeral services are organised by S Webb & Son Ltd but other firms are available. They will find out when the church can be used for a funeral and arrange a time and date that suits you. They will also contact our Vicar to conduct the service.
Three times a year we hold a Memorial Service, usually 6pm on a Sunday evening. Often there is one in February, one in June/July and one in October. This gives an opportunity to come and remember your loved one, to give thanks for their life, to light a candle in their memory and to ask for God's peace. Please Contact Us to find out when the next service is taking place.

Comfort During Sorrow
Jesus had a close friend, Lazarus, who died. As Jesus talked to Lazarus's sisters he spoke words of amazing power, love and comfort. Jesus gives hope in the face of death.
