Funerals


Funeral services are considered, as well as being an opportunity to mourn, as a celebration of the life of the deceased. Again, there is no set format for the service, the Minister devising the service to suit the needs and wishes of the family of the deceased.



Stand Chapel is a member congregation of the Unitarian movement that evolved out of a desire to be free from the restrictions of formal creeds and doctrines. The name "Unitarian" was chosen because of a resistence to the doctrine of the Trinity which early members found to be irrational and impossible to justify. Modern Unitarians have a much wider perspective with a vast range of religious opinion. Unitarianism is about being free to find your own place, to be comfortable with your own beliefs and encouraged continually to explore and to challenge.
