In a Singapore Christian funeral, the commemoration of the deceased’s life on Earth is symbolically celebrated through the funeral ceremony that is surrounded and filled with hope and righteousness, embracing Eternal life after physical death. Each denomination of the Christian Faith entails its multitude of teachings and traditions, closely tied into the funeral service of each Christian denomination. Despite their individual distinctions, the Christian faith as a whole remains reunited in their faith and trust in one God and his only begotten Son, Jesus Christ.
Christian Funeral Setup
The typical Singapore Christian funeral setup is simple yet modern. Its usually setup to facilitate open casket viewing, where family, relatives and friends can easily pay their last respects and/or say their final farewell. In front of the coffin is usually the deceased photo plus a table with an open bible and some flower arrangements.
The structure of the funeral ceremony is mostly similar in every denomination of the Christian faith. Such similarities are seen through tiger wake, collective prayers, funeral service, and collection of ashes:
A 3 to 5 day wake is typically held to allow time for friends and relatives to say their final goodbyes as well as offer condolences to the bereaved family. Though there will be moments of grief, the general atmosphere is usually very uplifting, as many Christians believe their loved ones are headed for a better place.
All are invited to come together in prayer to pray for the soul of the deceased, and to view the casket as a form of respect.
A funeral service will be held on the day of the scheduled cremation, where close friends and relatives are encouraged to be present. The duration of the service is usually an hour and consists of:
- Prayer session
- Scripture reading
- Message from Pastor
Collection of Ashes
The Funeral Director appointed will make arrangements for the collection of ashes. A pastor will usually be present to pray for the chosen niche and a final prayer will be said for the family members of the deceased.
Role of a Funeral Director
Even if the bereaved family is familiar with Christian funeral services and arrangements, such matters are best left to experts to handle. In times of grief, even the simplest of decisions can cause unbearable stress to the bereaved. As such, many will choose to hire an experienced Singapore Christian Funeral Director to take care of all funeral matters; you should to.
