HIRING THE CHURCH HALL

At the heart of the village

FUNERALS

As well as being a time of loss and sadness and the time to commend someone to God's eternal love, a funeral is an opportunity to celebrate their life and to give thanks.

We encourage people to hold their services in Church, whenever possible.

At Church there is room for as many people as want to come and no restriction on the length of service.

There is plenty of time to include readings,  poems, music or contributions from family and friends. We also have facilities for playing recorded music.

If there is to be a Cremation, the whole service can be held in Church, if that is what is preferred. The Parish Clergy also conduct services at the Crematorium.

Whoever is taking the service will help you to plan it and can suggest readings and music if that is helpful. Someone from the parish will also keep in touch after the service.

There is a Churchyard at St Saviour, Valley End, but the Cemetery in Chobham is under the control of the civil Parish Council. For burials there, please contact the Office at the Pavilion (01276 856633).

Annual memorial service

Each year we hold a special Memorial Service for all who are mourning in memory of those they have loved. Invitations go to all who have had family funeral services have been conducted by the parish in the previous year, but, of course, everyone is welcome.

Memorial Book

A book dedicated to the memory of David Carey commemorates many people associated with the churches. If you have a relative whose funeral was conducted in the parish, or at a crematorium by one of ministry team, you can have their name entered in the book. Forms are available from the Churchwardens. There is a £10 charge for the inscription.
