Funerals and Bereavement
A bereavement is a difficult time for everyone. People have many different feelings and emotions about what has happened. Grief, anger, relief, and thanksgiving are all common feelings. On top of all the natural emotions that are felt when a death occurs, there are many arrangements to be made.
If you are a member of Giffnock South Parish Church, or live within the church’s parish you can call on the services of the Minister to conduct a funeral.
Before you make any plans or decisions it is important that you engage a reputable Funeral Director who will guide you through the sometimes complex arrangements that need to be made. It is the job of the Funeral Director to act as the link between you and the Minister, as well as make any of the necessary bookings for the Church service or the Crematorium or Cemetery.
The Minister will make arrangements to meet with you to discuss the content of the funeral service after all parties have agreed the date, time and venue. Things you will need to think about will include hymns, readings and the content of the tribute.
The Minister will be happy to guide you through these arrangements.
