Every year for a number of years now we have invited family and friends of those for whom we have taken funerals in the preceding twelve months, to a special bereavement service. It has been our privilege to bring encouragement to these families through their sense of loss. In the past we have also extended the invitation to those who have been bereaved and have lost loved ones a while ago.
We regret however that, due to the fact that we now host very few funeral services we are not now able to attract enough people to our annual bereavement service for it to be viable any more. Following careful consideration we have therefore decided not to continue with the bereavement services here at St. Augustine’s Church.
We would, however, like to encourage you to attend the All Souls Day service at the Cathedral. This is a service especially for family and friends to remember their deceased and will be held on Sunday 04 November at 6 pm.
Or you may wish to attend a Bereavement Service to take place at The Cathedral on 06 December at 6.30 pm, jointly organised by Wathalls and the Cathedral.
We do hope that you have found strength, comfort and hope over recent months. We continue to assure you of our prayers.
