Funeral services usually include the remembering of the person who has died, usually readings from the Bible, prayers (relating to the deceased person and to their family and friends), and hymns or other music.
“We have come together to commend our brother/sister N
into the hands of Almighty God our heavenly Father.
In the presence of death, Christians have sure ground
for hope and confidence, and even for joy,
because the Lord Jesus Christ,
who shared our human life and death,
was raised again triumphant and lives for evermore.
In him his people find eternal life, and in this faith,
we put our whole trust in his goodness and mercy.”
From the Church in Wales Order for Christian Funerals
