Be Not Afraid

You shall cross the barren desert,
But you shall not die of thirst.
You shall wander far in safety,
Though you do not know the way. You shall speak your words in foreign lands,
And all will understand,
You shall see the face of God and live. Be not afraid,
I go before you always,
Come follow Me,
And I shall give you rest.If you pass through raging waters
In the sea, you shall not drown.
If you walk amidst the burning flames,
You shall not be harmed. If you stand before the pow’r of hell
And death is at your side,
Know that I am with you, through it all Be not afraid,
I go before you always,
Come follow Me,
And I shall give you rest. Blessed are your poor,
For the Kingdom shall be theirs.
Blest are you that weep and mourn,
For one day you shall laugh. And if wicked men insult and hate you, all because of Me,
Blessed, blessed are you! Be not afraid,
I go before you always,
Come follow Me,
And I shall give you rest.

Due to the current COVID-19 crisis, we are having to change the way we are running. We would appreciate where possible to do funeral arrangements over the phone. We are aware this is not ideal, neither is it the way we wish to be operating. Understandably due to the COVID-19 crisis, we are adopting these methods to be as compliant as possible with government guidance. This will also apply to the manner in how we are conducting the funerals, we will ensure to do our utmost to remain highly respectful as usual, with as many of our traditions still in place.

For the safety of our staff and yourselves, we are adapting daily to the guidelines set by the government and local authorities.

For any queries or concerns please do contact any of our offices or general enquires on 01252 616431.
