''Death belongs to life as birth does

The walk is in the raising of the foot

as in the laying of it down.''

Rabindranath Tagore

Our Clergy Team are available to conduct funerals either at St Peter’s or at St Nicholas’ Church or direct to one of the local Crematoriums.  The clergy may be contacted directly or via one of the local Funeral Directors.  The clergy will meet with the family to discuss the arrangements and help shape the service in response to the family’s wishes and are happy to conduct both traditional and non-traditional services.  No previous connection with the church is required.
Whilst St Peter’s Churchyard is now closed for burials, we have a Garden of Remembrance where Cremated Remains may be buried.  Burial is available locally at Portishead Cemetery.  The Funeral Directors can advise on other options.
At St Peter’s Church there is a Book of Remembrance where the names of departed loved ones may be recorded.  The page where their name is recorded will be open on the anniversary of their death and they will be remembered in the daily prayers offered in church on that day.  A form for requesting an entry in the Book may be downloaded here
