The Parish of Christchurch. Christchurch Priory, St George at Jumpers, St John at Purewell


Last updated Wednesday, 3 January, 2024

Organising a funeral can be a distressing experience.  At the Priory we want to help make the process go as smoothly as possible for those who are grieving.

A funeral can be held in the Priory, or in one of our daughter churches, for anyone who has lived within the Parish of Christchurch; they are not required to have been a worshipper.  Our clergy are also prepared to conduct funeral services at the crematorium or the cemetery.

Very often funeral directors will coordinate with the Verger for a family to organize a funeral; however relatives or executors are also welcome to contact the Parish Office either by email or by telephone 01202 143859 to discuss any arrangements.

In our daily Eucharist Service prayers are said for those who have recently died.

A special service is held at the beginning of November on the Feast of All Saints to which we invite the relatives of those who have passed away in the past year.
