A Christian funeral is a service of worship in which the life of the deceased is celebrated and remembered with thanksgiving to God. In addition to a personal tribute, a funeral service usually includes the singing of hymns, prayers, scripture readings and a short sermon about heaven and the promise of eternal life. The minister will work with the family to create a personal and meaningful service.
Some services take place at the church and are followed by a committal at the crematorium or the graveside. Others take place entirely at the crematorium. There is no fee for a funeral and services are available for church members and residents of Cadzow Parish. The undertaker will make arrangements with the minister who will then contact the family directly.
