For I am convinced that neither death, nor life,
nor angels, nor rulers,
nor things present, nor things to come,
nor powers, nor height, nor depth,
nor anything else in all creation,
will be able to separate us from the love of God
in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Romans 8: 38+39
Death affects our life deeply, this is true for our own death and the death of someone close to us.
As a Christian congregation, we engage in accompanying the dying and in journeying with those in grief. In October, we celebrate an annual service “In loving memory” of church members and those connected with our congregation who have died during the course of the year.
In 2016 we opened the sanctuary from 1st to 7th November ‘To absent friends’ (www.toabsentfriends.org.uk) for a time of quiet reflection in memory of loved ones who have died. We hope to do so again in 2017.
