Marchmont St Giles’ is committed to making sure that everyone who lives in this parish who wishes the Minister to conduct their funeral service does so. If you wish a service in the Church or at the Grave or in the Crematorium, we will do our best to help you plan what you hope for.
Nobody who has been bereaved should hesitate to seek the services of the parish minister, either directly or through the undertaker.
A Christian funeral service is part of letting go and as well as sharing the grief that is felt, it is also a way to celebrate the life of someone who was and is precious in the sight of God. Christians believe that the funeral is also a commitment to remember that God is with us through every experience of life, including walking through the valley of the shadow of death.
