Protestant Funerals Sydney

Major Protestant religions include Anglican, Uniting, Methodist, Baptist, Lutheran, Seventh Day Adventist, Jehovah’s Witness and many others. Each church, religion and community will likely have of their own funeral traditions, but they do have some common traits. 
The funeral usually takes place within the week after the death, often in a church, funeral home, Chapel or Crematorium. Some families will choose to have a wake or visitation prior to the funeral, but not always. Protestant funerals are usually very quiet, solemn affairs, though some churches with a musical or more boisterous tradition of worship do incorporate those traditions in funerals. 
Many churches have a tradition to emphasize a community feeling at funerals, by inviting attendees to speak about the Deceased in combination with traditional readings from Scripture. Sometimes the Deceased’s favourite music will be played and photos will be displayed. There is also sometimes a traditional liturgy, as with the Catholic Church, and sometimes not; it varies greatly among denominations and communities. 
It is common for a reception to be held after the funeral, either at the church or at the home of the family where people share food and stories.
