The death of a loved one is always difficult. We want to support you in the most loving, helpful way that we can. The parish priest or one of the other clergy will be happy to talk through the details of planning of a service, which might be a funeral service or Holy Eucharist. We will always conduct funerals for members of the congregation who have died or for those people with a particular connection to St Bartholomew. If you or the deceased do not have a connection to the parish but would like us to be involved in planning your loved one’s funeral, please contact the parish office.
If you would like a member of our pastoral care ministry to come and pray with someone who is near death, to administer anointing and/or communion, please contact the parish office. These acts can be sources of great comfort and strength to those who are nearing the end of their earthly lives.
