Funerals

Funerals

During the Covid19 preventative measures, current restrictions in Level 1 allow 100 people to attend a funeral. All should ensure 2m social distancing.

However within the Church buildings numbers are limited by social distancing requirements to around 12-20 household groups.

Meeting with family groups to arrange a funeral service must be limited to the Scottish Government restrictions. It will also be possible for Rev Donald to meet with families via Facetime, Skype, WhatsApp, Zoom or FaceBook messenger.

Rev Donald will discuss with families other options to include wider family and circle of friends and community. Recordings of services, Recorded video tributes are among the possibilities. A later service of Thanksgiving may be appropriate after all restrictions are lifted.

You can contact Rev Donald on 01967 402234 or dmccorkindale@churchofscotland.org.uk
