Christian Funeral Services

We offer live Christian funeral services to suit your needs.

One of the many types of religious services we offer at Newrest Funerals, a Christian funeral is offered to anyone who would like it. We arrange Christian funerals in every part of the UK for people who may have been committed church-goers as well as people who had a more relaxed attitude to spirituality and faith. Our caring team is here to take your call and to start making the initial arrangement necessary for a modern Christian funeral whether you want a Church of England one, a Catholic one, a non-conformist one or a service that will be conducted under the auspices of the church of Scotland.

Although many Christian funerals will take place at a church or by the graveside with a committal type of service, we can also make arrangements for Christian funerals at crematoria if you prefer. We can also arrange for eco-friendly funerals for your recently departed loved one which will be overseen by a Christian minister. In short, we’ll make the necessary arrangements to meet a wide range of beliefs and preferences for both committed Christians and people who would like a traditional style of service, with Bible readings and so on, but who had a more private sort of faith. 

Indeed, with a pre-payment plan, you can make the necessary arrangement for your own Christian funeral in advance. This way, you’ll know you will get the sort of Christian service you’d like without leaving those you leave behind with a substantial bill to pay.

What Should You Include in a Christian Funeral?

From graveside committals to open caskets that are laid out for mourners in churches, there is no single set of rules for any Christian funeral. Some people will want hymns to be sung and for psalms to be read while others may prefer pop music to feature, especially if the lyrics have a spiritual dimension. Most Christian funerals will feature a eulogy, however. This is when a speaker will talk about the deceased, their life and their impact on the world and those around them. A Christian minister – a priest or a vicar – is likely to be needed to oversee the proceedings but it is also possible to run a Christian funeral with a layperson in charge if preferred.

At Newrest Funerals, we will guide you through every step of the process in arranging a Christian funeral service, from the funeral cortège to the type of coffin or casket to choose. There are many decisions to make to ensure you get the funeral you want and we’ll make sure all of the important ones are properly considered. Remember that there is no right or wrong way to proceed, just preferences that will reflect and honour the faith of the deceased.
