The death of a loved one, a family member or friend, often brings with it a deep sense of loss, pain or shock. Grief is unpredictable and there are few words that help immediately.

A funeral can express a range of thoughts and feelings through readings, prayers and music that offer a chance to say farewell and a glimpse of hope in God’s promises.

Talk to a vicar about preparing a funeral


 St John’s is the ancient church of the former Parish of Radyr, almost 800 years old, though it was much altered in the Victorian period. We believe it stands on the site of an ancient wayside shrine – the prayer place (aradur) which gives the parish its name. The yew tree outside the main door may be a thousand years old.

Until the 1970s St John’s was a little country church, surrounded by farmland. Now it is in the middle of a large private housing estate, and the old farm house, the Radyr Court, is now a pub!
