Peace At The Last : Leading Funerals Well, Paperback / softback Book

Peace At The Last : Leading Funerals Well Paperback / softback


Until relatively recently a Church of England funeral was the default option of the majority of the British population.

This is no longer the case. Today, in some urban areas, secular or humanist funerals now account for 40% of funerals.

The numbers of Anglican funerals are in free-fall. In exploring what makes a good funeral, this practical guide aims to rebuild the confidence of clergy in their funeral ministry and to equip them for transformative, missional pastoral engagement.

This book grew out of diocesan consultation with funeral directors who identified three essential qualities that only the church offers: a distinctive understanding of death continuing pastoral carehope, not just empathy. Building on this foundation, Robert Atwell suggests many practical ways in which the church can become better at conducting funerals and engaging with those who seek pastoral support at critical points in their lives.
