Funerals

If you need to talk to us about a funeral, please contact enquiries@erbc.org.uk or admin@erbc.org.uk

We recognise the importance of funerals as a vital act of both personal and corporate grief. While all funerals held at ERBC during the pandemic must follow government guidelines and restrict attendance, the service can be streamed on YouTube to allow family and friends to be involved in the service.

There are currently no funerals scheduled to take place at Edward Road.

The funeral of our former member Nathaniel Octavus Waite (aka Popeye, Pops, and Lincoln) took place on Friday 23rd July at Aberdeen St church, Winson Green.

please continue to pray for the family during this difficult time.

You can view the following recorded funerals:

Funeral of the late Cuthbert Wharton – 11th March, 10:00 am

Ordinarily (once government restrictions are lifted), the church can accommodate 250 people in the main sanctuary with an additional overspill room that can accommodate 80 seated in the hall to view the service remotely, projected on a screen. A creche space can be made available during the service, for toddlers and nursing mothers, however, no childcare will be provided. Please indicate whether the creche is required before the day of the funeral.

The cost of holding a funeral at Edward Road is £200. An additional minister’s fee will also be charged at the national standard rate (this was £199 in 2020). Both the Church fee and Ministers’ fees may be waived for church members on the church roll – please ask the minister if you believe that this might apply.

The Hall can be hired following the service for refreshments or for a reception. Please call the Church  or email please contact the Church Secretary for more information.
