christmas service for recently bereaved

Does anyone know of any churches that hold a special church service for people who have lost a family member recently? I am looking for something to take my friend along to her, she lost her mum only a few months ago and I think she would like to spend some time thinking about her. A lot of the usual church services as a bit too happy. (I am a baptist!).
Anything in Glasgow, Lanarkshire or West Dunbartonshire would be helpful, thanks
Me debt free thanks to MSE :T


  • try the wee free kirks - they are rarely mistaken for rays of sunshine
  • there is a special carol service for the bereaved in Carluke at St Andrews parish church on Thursday,December 8th at 7pm.
    There is also a memorial service in Lanark at St Nicholas church on Sunday,December 4th at 3pm.This service lasts around 30 mins with refreshments afterwards.
    These are the only ones i know of.Hope you find something.
  • Oh hope you find something, please post if you do as I am sure a lot of people might be grateful of it, I know I was when our local church had a service for those that had died in the previous year to my mum.
  • If you phone the Coop funeral services in Johnstone theyll be able to give you details of one in Paisley thats on every year
