What's on


A funeral marks the close of a human life on earth. It is the opportunity for friends and family to express their grief, to give thanks for the life which has now completed its journey in this world and to commend the person into God's keeping.


As far back into history as we can penetrate, human beings seem to have felt the need for a ceremonial leave-taking of those who have died.


A funeral service in All Saints’ can be very short and quiet with only a few members of the family present or an occasion of great solemnity with music, hymns and a packed church.


Whether in a parish church or a crematorium chapel, it will be based on the funeral service from Common Worship with the addition of hymns, favourite prayers and readings, an address.


Whatever the pattern of service, the words and actions all speak of a loving God and the preciousness to Him of every human being.


The graveyard directly below All Saints’ Church is not open for new burials but the village operates a cemetery situated next to it. For details of arrangements regarding this cemetery, please contact the Parish Clerk on 01924 861862.


Bereavement can be very hard and if we can help in anyway, we are always happy to visit or be available in church. On Saturday mornings, the church is always open for anyone to pop in for a coffee and a chat or some time alone.


At the beginning of November, we hold a memorial service where we remember by name those who have recently died. Please contact Revd. Louise Tinniswood if you would like a loved one remembered in this way.
