Funerals

St Anne's Church is available for funerals. 

We appreciate that there is usually only a short period for organising a funeral, and that it is a difficult time for all concerned.  Our clergy are very experienced in caring for those who are grieving, and in arranging funerals.  Please, contact the Reverend Deborah Bird if you need to discuss a funeral.   

Phone 0400 816 202

You will also need to have a funeral director, and the clergy will work in conjunction with them to make the funeral arrangements.  We will begin planning the funeral with the traditional Anglican service, but it will be important for you to discuss how that can be adapted to include meaningful prayers, songs, readings and speeches that will help to remember your loved one in a respectful way.

A graveside service or a cremation can also be arranged.
