funeral lilies  It is an unfortunate truth that death touches all our lives at some time. Arranging a funeral may be the most difficult thing that people do, and the Anglican Church is here to help you through the process.
 
Usually the funeral director will contact the church on your behalf, however you may wish to discuss the details of a funeral directly with our curate Rev. Christine Goldsmith, (email christineg@live.com), and perhaps ask what pastoral care is available.
 
You can be assured that your needs will be discussed with sensitivity.
Funerals are generally arranged more quickly in Cyprus than in the UK. Most funerals are conducted at the graveside, whether in the British cemetery at Kolossi/Erimi or in a village cemetery, (there is one in Pissouri). Some families prefer a service to be held in St Barnabas’ church, Limassol, followed by interment, and either of these is possible. The British cemetery is an independent charitable trust which allows the interment of British passport holders and their spouses.
 
As yet, no crematorium has been built in Cyprus, so cremation can only be done at present by transporting a coffin to another country.
 
Whatever your needs, we will try to accommodate them. For more information, please go to the St Barnabas’ website here.

“Do not let your hearts be troubled.  Trust in God; trust also in me.  In my Father’s house are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you.  I am going there to prepare a place for you.  And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am.”               John 14:1-3 NIV cemetery, sunshine
