You do not have to be a member of any church or religion to attend. There will also be an opportunity for people to talk to the clergy and one another at the end of the services.
Anyone wishing to have the names of their departed family and friends read aloud during the service can add the names to the lists at the back of the churches.
Reverend Andrew Smith said: “Everyone needs to reflect on the family and friends they have lost, it is perfectly natural. These services are a safe, spiritual environment and I’d encourage everyone to attend. Here we remember the people who have died and we give thanks for the positive influences they have had on our lives.”
