Funerals

A memorial service is a significant part of saying goodbye to a loved one. We express our sympathy as you walk through this step in the journey of life and death.

Knox United Church would like to assist you in your time of loss, by supporting you and your family in grieving, and by helping with arrangements that involve the church and its facilities. Our minister is available to be with you in the ways you may need– to listen, to pray, to simply be present, and to prepare an appropriate service.

A funeral service (with body and coffin present) or a memorial service (with or without cremated remains present) is an important way in which to honour one who has died and to help family and friends acknowledge their loss. The minister will help you put together this worship service, discussing the eulogy or words of remembrance, Scripture readings, music and prayers, and all other aspects of the service.

Our minister is on call to enter into pastoral conversations with you and to bear witness to the love of God in our living and in our dying.

Please feel free to contact our Church Office or the Minister for further information.
