Supporting those who grieve with a loving attitude and offering ongoing bereavement support is a valued ministry to grieving families and friends.
We seek to respectfully acknowledge the deceased and to celebrate their life with thanksgiving. The family are assisted in the choice of hymns, songs etc, being mindful that the funeral is being conducted within the church and certain guidelines apply. The order of service is based upon the Funeral service from A Prayer Book for Australia.
It is our preference to conduct Funeral services in the church, however if the family wish to hold the service in a Funeral home or at the graveside, every effort is made to assist them.
Support with audio-visual and/or a pianist can be provide. St Bartholomew’s Catering Team is also able to assist with light refreshments following the service.
