A church for people of all ages in the heart of the community



Many people like to hold the funerals of their loved ones in church, followed by a brief committal at the graveside or the crematorium. Alternatively the whole service can take place at the crematorium. The Funeral Director will usually contact the minister who will meet with the family to plan the service.

Interment of Ashes

We have a beautiful, peaceful memorial garden at St Matthew & St Luke’s, where it is possible to inter ashes. We hope that this may make it easier for their relatives to visit their resting place.

Memorial Services

Every November we hold a memorial service when we thank God for the lives of those who have meant so much to us.

We light candles to remember our loved ones and their names are read out. If you would like someone remembered by name at our next service, no matter how long ago they passed away, please ring the church office and let us know.

Flowers in Memory

If you would like to remember someone who has died by arranging or providing the flowers in church on a particular date, please contact the Church Office.


If you have lost someone you love and you would like to talk about it, please contact the Vicar or Pastoral Assistant via the Church Office.
