. A memorial service may be held, in church or at home, not as a replacement but in addition to the funeral. So for example, where the funeral takes place in England, there may be a memorial service here at Christ the King, Sophiatown.
To avoid unnecessary planning hiccups, the date and time of the funeral needs to be arranged first with Christ the King, and then with your Funeral Directors. Once this is done, you should arrange an interview with the priest who will be conducting the funeral. The priest will discuss the format of the service with you. To avoid meeting traffic at the cemeteries. We prefer that services and no later than 10.30 am from the church. We do not conduct funerals on Sundays as we observe each observe every Sunday as “little Easter day.”
Please contact the Church Office if you would like to arrange an interview.
