Funerals

Church funerals offer an opportunity to say farewell and to celebrate a life in many ways through singing, music, a eulogy and readings. When we are bereaved, music can be uplifting and a great source of comfort and consolation. It can also express how we feel more eloquently than words at a time when the right words can be hard to find. Sometimes a beautiful song, sung at a painful time in our lives enables us to move through these thresholds in life and can bring acceptance. Grace has sung at many funerals and sings with compassion, empathy and sincerity. She understands how difficult it is to lose a loved one and will offer you as much support and help as possible when choosing songs for the ceremony.
