End of Life

Memorial and Funeral Services

Please call the WPC Pastors at 757-229-4235 to guide you through memorial or funeral service planning.

The Session has established criteria for memorial and funeral services held in the church. These criteria are principles that seek to preserve the sanctity of worship and celebration of the gift of life of the deceased. The church website has more information about the Witness to the Resurrection and Celebration of the Life of a loved one at WPC. Please call the church office or use the church website to initiate a request to use WPC.

Planning a MEMORIAL OR FUNERAL Service

One of the pastors of the Williamsburg Presbyterian Church staff will officiate at any funeral or memorial service. The Planning Form is a template used as a guide to work with families to plan a worship service and provide care that celebrates the life of a loved one, and the Service of Witness to the Resurrection form explains the in-depth procedures and practices at Williamsburg Presbyterian Church:

Service of Witness to the Resurrection held at WPC (PCUSA)


WPC established a columbarium a dedicated space in the church where its members and their loved ones may have their lives memorialized, and their cremated remains housed and safeguarded. The WPC Columbarium is an assembly of niches designed to house urns containing a deceased person’s cremated remains. The Columbarium is located on the lower level next to Room LL049 beneath the church Narthex. The Columbarium can be reached easily via the Narthex staircase or the elevator.


In our community of faith, we want to support each other when we experience joys and sorrows.  Call for assistance from our pastoral staff regarding your immediate needs, marriage counseling, hospital visits, funerals/memorial services.
