St Michael & All Angels

Sharing God's Love


In the dark times of life, such as when a loved one dies, we are there to offer help and love.

All Marden folk are welcome to come into church for a funeral or a memorial service, and we are happy to create a service that is appropriate.

We also have a place for the burial of ashes if required.

Marden's cemetery is about half a mile from the village centre on the road towards Maidstone.

A member of our pastoral team is always happy to visit the bereaved after a funeral, and help introduce them to events and activities in the village.

On the first Sunday evening of November at 6.30 pm we have a special service to remember those we have loved and lost. In the early years we invite the bereaved to this service by personal letter. Thereafter anyone is welcome. During this very popular service we light a candle for each person remembered by name.
