Christianity is the most widespread religion in the world, with more than 2 billion followers of many denominations who believe in the resurrection of Christ.

Christians nurture a strong belief in the afterlife and the resurrection of the body. And – in the conviction that the Son of God sacrificed himself to atone for the sins of mankind – they believe their transgressions will be forgiven.

Accordingly, Christian funeral services focus mainly on the deceased’s entry into heaven and God’s compassion in giving mourners the fortitude to cope with their loss.

The Christian funeral service

A typical Christian funeral service includes:

  • Opening of the service with a reading from the scriptures by the minister or priest – typically based on “I am the resurrection and the life, saith the Lord”.
  • Prayers and hymns.
  • Sermon, verses from the Old or New Testament, and a psalm from the Bible – often Psalm 23, “The Lord is My Shepherd”.
  • Reflection on the deceased’s life by the minister or priest.
  • Further scripture readings, prayers, and hymns.
  • Eulogy by a family member or close friend (except in Catholic funerals).
  • A minute’s silence to honour the departed.
  • Closing words by the minister or priest.
  • Procession to the committal.

Role of the wake in Christian funerals

  • A social gathering associated with death, a wake is often held ahead of a Christian funeral service to give friends and family the opportunity to pay their respects to the deceased while consoling one another – the funeral service itself doesn’t provide a platform for casual interaction between the bereaved.
  • The wake can be held in the home of the departed or at the funeral hall or another location. In Singapore, funeral wakes often take place in HDB (Housing & Development Board) communal void deck areas beneath the block of flats where the deceased lived.

Christian memorial services

Christians may hold a memorial service – often weeks or even months after the funeral – to bring family and friends of the deceased together in support and remembrance.

Like a wake, a memorial service is far less formal and structured than the funeral service itself, with a stronger emphasis on a celebration of life.

Whereas the role of attendees at the funeral service is largely restricted to observance and reflection, the memorial service generally allows for each guest to participate to some extent.

Entrust Funeral Service will treat your loved one with utmost respect. We'll ensure the experience you and your family have with us is truly pleasant.

The Christian funeral ritual

Christian funeral rites

Christians believe that while death is the end of a person’s life in this world, the soul lives on in the afterlife. Therefore, Christian funeral rites are rooted in the offering of prayers and references to the resurrection and heaven.

Other Christian funeral rites include:

  • The singing of hymns.
  • A eulogy in honour of the departed.
  • Readings from the Bible.
  • Burial or interment of ashes in consecrated ground.

Christian funeral rites – steeped in history and exuding symbolism – help mourners to:

  • Accept the reality of the death.
  • Give testimony to the life of the departed.
  • Express their grief.
  • Embrace the faith and its beliefs about life and death.
  • Achieve continuity and hope for the living.

The Christian committal

  • The committal is regarded as a particularly solemn aspect of the Christian funeral. It entails burial (interment) or cremation. With burial, the coffin is lowered into a grave. At a cremation, curtains are closed around the coffin.
  • A Christian burial is accompanied by ecclesiastical rites and typically takes place in consecrated ground.
  • Cremation has become increasingly common in Christianity, although the faith opposed the practice for many years. The ashes are usually interred in a churchyard or other burial ground, or sometimes committed to the sea.

How family members participate in a Christian funeral

As well as praying for the soul of the departed in the afterlife, a Christian funeral is also a time to remember and honour their life.

Common ways that family and friends can participate in the funeral process include:

  • Taking part in the wake.
  • Joining in with prayers and hymns at the funeral service.
  • Serving as a pallbearer to help carry or escort the casket.
  • Offering a eulogy to recollect the life of the deceased.
  • Reading a prayer, or poem or other literary extract.
  • Performing a song or other piece of music.
  • Sending floral tributes.
  • Hosting a post-service reception – an opportunity for mourners to celebrate the life of the departed in a more casual setting.
  • Taking part in a post-funeral memorial service.

Advice for non-Christians attending a Christian funeral

You don’t have to share the religious beliefs of the deceased to attend a Christian funeral, but you will be expected to respect Christian traditions during the service, much of which will be spent in quiet contemplation or listening to the minister or priest.

However, attendees are encouraged to join in with prayers and hymns as a mark of respect to the family.

The dress code for a Christian funeral is dark-coloured clothing, preferably black. In some Christian denominations, it’s traditional for women to wear a hat.

You’ll find that the funeral usually takes place about a week after death. There may also be a viewing or wake before the service, depending on the family’s wishes.

Some families may ask for charitable donations in lieu of flowers, so check first.
