A bereavement is a time of shock and grief, bewilderment and heartbreak. We can be overwhelmed by a torrent of emotions as we try to take in the loss of someone precious to us. At Blackhall St. Columba’s Church, we want to help you in any way we can. Our minister will be happy to come and visit you, offering care and support. If you would like us to conduct a funeral service, our minister will visit you to discuss and plan the service.

You do not need to be a member of the church in order for our minister to lead a funeral service on your behalf. We regard it as a privilege to be in a position to help you at a time when your feelings are at their most raw and tender. There is no charge or fee for the services of our minister, and our guarantee is that we will look after your needs compassionately and diligently.

If you would like the help of St. Columba’s Church with a funeral service, please ask your funeral director to contact our minister as you begin to make the necessary arrangements. We will then be in touch with you soon thereafter.

If you are experiencing great difficulty in coming to terms with a bereavement, please contact us and we will be glad to meet you or speak to you. If we are not able to help you, we will be happy to suggest other agencies that might be able to help you more effectively.

If you would like us to help you with regard to a funeral or bereavement, or some other loss that has caused you great pain, please contact the minister or the church office.
