United Church Ė Funeral Information
Why We Have Funerals in the Church
We understand our purpose is to be about Godís work and worship, and we believe as a Christian community that in the love of God there is hope for the dead, and comfort for the grieving. A funeral or memorial service is one way for us to proclaim our trust in Godís grace, and provide an opportunity to provide remembrance and thanksgiving for the life that has now ended. We also believe that every life is Godís gift, and therefore no one will be refused the opportunity for this funeral ministry.
It is our hope to be of help and for that reason we have put together this information, designed to answer questions and to provide you with knowledge of resources that are available to you.
