Funerals & Bereavement Support

Funeral services can still be held at St Philips. However, owing to current guidance from the government and the Church of England we will have to restrict the number of people who can attend.


We recognise how difficult this will be for many and how it may add to the pain of a loss. Please contact either Rev. Andy or Alan Stanley to discuss arrangements and how we can support you at this difficult time.

If you are unable to attend a friend or loved ones funeral, here are some suggestions for ways in which you can still connect with family and friends, and remember from home

Bereavement Support

Bereavement, as well as all sorts of other losses, brings us to turning points in our lives. Other relationships and our daily activities shift and change to accommodate the space that a loss has created. Past experiences of loss may come into sharp focus again. Our mood may be unpredictable and our ability to pick up the threads of everyday life may vary from day-to-day.


Those we love will naturally be hoping for signs of our return to our ‘usual self’. We may find ourselves striving to seem recovered so as not to disappoint them or cause them anxiety.
