At this sad time, we pray that you will know the comfort and strength of God. We will do everything we can to help you through this difficult time - pointing you to the Jesus, the Good Shepherd who leads us safely through even the darkest valley (Psalm 23).

The church is available for a funeral service, allowing time for hymns, readings and memories.
This may be followed by a short committal: cremation/burial at the Wilford Hill, or burial in the neighbouring Rushcliffe graveyard.

We can also take a shorter funeral service at the crematorium,
and also help you with the interment of ashes.

Please contact the church office in the first instance (wilfordchurch@outlook.com)

A Prayer
Gracious God,

surround us and all who mourn this day
with your continuing compassion.
Do not let grief overwhelm your children,
or turn them against you.
When grief seems never-ending,
take them one step at a time
along your road of death and resurrection
in Jesus Christ our Lord. 

Amen
