Celebrating Birth

A Naming ceremony, sometimes called a Baptism or Christening in the Christian tradition, welcomes a baby or child into the world and its community. The Chapel service focuses on the commitment of family and friends, as well as the parents, to offer the child love and support. Our Minister can help you create a special family ceremony.

Funerals & Memorial Services

 

Our beautiful Chapel offers a tranquil space for a memorial service or a funeral. Our Minister can help to plan and conduct a service which commemorates and reflects the person’s life. The service is a celebration of love and an affirmation of life which can include favourite readings, music and tributes which honour the deceased. We work in collaboration with local Funeral Directors so there is a choice between a Funeral ceremony followed by a local cremation or burial. Some families also choose to hold a larger scale Memorial service at a later date when travel allows a greater number of loved ones to attend.
