Taking Funerals Seriously

About 80 clergy and licensed lay ministers from the Diocese of Rochester gathered at Christ Church, Orpington on Thursday 26 November to listen to Rev Dr Sandra Millar speaking about “Taking Funerals Seriously.” Sandra is the Head of Projects and Developments and works for the Archbishop’s Council based in Church House, London.  

Characteristically flamboyant and entertaining, Rev Millar managed the unenviable task of combining a serious subject and appropriate moments of levity with considerable expertise. 

The event considered the contemporary content of offering funeral provision, the significance of the Church of England pastoral offering, professional relationships (with funeral directors in particular) the ‘Grave Talk’ initiative and the follow-up necessary after a funeral service. The event was very well received and gave delegates plenty to think about.
