Funeral Services

A funeral is used to mark the end of a person’s life here on earth. Family and friends come together to express grief, give thanks for the life lived and commend the person into God’s keeping. Everyone is entitled to either a burial service (funeral) or to have their ashes buried in their local parish churchyard by their local parish priest whether they attended church or not. Some people find planning the funeral with family and friends helps in their grieving. Perhaps you already know something of what your loved one wanted. You may even have planned the service together some time ago.

If you are uncertain the minister who will lead the service can help you choose suitable readings; for more information, visit http://www.churchofenglandfunerals.org

If they did not know your loved one well, they will want to talk with you to build up a picture of the person’s life.

Our usual Sunday services at Marldon in March are at 9.15 am.

On March 24th there will be a spoken Celtic Communion (which tends to be a shorter family service.)

Mothering Sunday is on March 31st - all Mums, Dads and Carers welcome!

All welcome to any or all of our services. We'd love to see you there!
