Keith Beckingham, the minister of Guildford Methodist Church (or another minister in the Wey Valley Methodist Circuit) will always be available to offer support to the bereaved after a death in the family, and to conduct funeral services.
The Minister will meet the person making the arrangements - usually in that person's home. This is an opportunity to discuss the form of service and to share memories of the loved one who has died. For the funeral itself, there are three main possibilities:
- A commital at either a cemetery or a crematorium followed by a service of thanksgiving in the Church.
- A service in the Church followed by committal at a cemetery or crematorium.
- A service and committal wholly at the Crematorium.
