Bereavement Care

Taking care of the bereaved is an important part of our ministry at St Mary Magdalene. Funerals are conducted in Church or at the Crematorium by our team of pastorally sensitive ministers, taking into account the wishes of the deceased and their family.

Each funeral is followed up by a member of our Bereavement Visiting Team, offering further help and care as appropriate.

On the first Sunday of each month, at 6.00 pm, we hold a service of Hope and Remembrance, remembering those who have died. All are welcome to attend this service at time – following a recent bereavement, remembering a birthday or anniversary, or just because you want to.

Our Book of Remembrance in Church is opened daily. Should you wish to add a name to the book, please contact Mrs Barbara Knowles on TBC.

Do contact Barbara or the Rector on 0115 964 1499 if we can be of any help to you. For more general visits or contact, please see the page on Pastoral Care.
