We offer a Scattering of the Ashes service to the public for those who wish to commit their ashes to the sea. Rob has been conducting this service for many years on the Gold Coast as a Senior Coastguard Skipper. Services are as per the one shown below or provide your own personal experience to say goodbye to a loved one.
“They that go down to the sea in ships, that do business in great waters; these men and women see the works of the Lord and his wonders in the deep”.
Jesus said, “I am the resurrection and the life, he who believes in me, though he dies, yet shall he live; and whoever lives and believes in me shall never die”.
The Lord is my shepherd
I shall not want.
He makes me lie down in green pastures;
He leads me beside still waters.
He restores my soul;
He leads me in the paths of righteousness
For His name’s sake.
Yea though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil;
For You are with me;
Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.
You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies;
You anoint my head with oil;
My cup runs over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
All the days of my life;
And I will dwell in the house of the Lord
“Whereas it has pleased Almighty God to take unto himself the soul of our brother/sister __________ we therefore commit his/her ashes to the winds of heaven and the depths of the sea, in sure and certain hope of the resurrection to eternal life, through our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, who with the Father and the Holy Ghost liveth and reigneth for ever and ever.
Almighty God, Father of all mercies and giver of all comfort, deal graciously with those who mourn, that casting every care on you, they may know the consolation of your love, through Jesus Christ our Lord.
May the Lord bless you and keep you. May his face shine upon you and be gracious to you. May he look upon you with kindness and give you his peace.
