Remember us in your Will

Have you considered leaving a gift to your church in your Will? A gift in your Will can have a huge impact on the life of your church.
As is the case for many churches, regular giving is absorbed in ‘keeping the show on the road’ – paying the parish share, insuring and heating the building, repairing the roof and so on. A gift from your estate is different; we have a legacy policy stating that they will not use gifts in Wills for everyday expenditure; instead, the PCC promises to spend your gift on a special project to make a difference to the life and witness of the church.
For example, a gift in your Will could support your church’s ministry in schools or nursing homes, refurbish part of the building, support an overseas mission partner, preserve your historic church bells or organ, equip the church with new Bibles  and much more.

Gifts in Wills are an important part of Christian giving. Many of us give regularly to the church each week or month from our income; why not from our estates too? It’s also a way to give thanks to God for the gifts of your life and lifetime. Read more on gifts in Wills and Christian giving here. If the value of your estate falls above the Inheritance tax threshold, there are also tax advantages from donating at least 10% of the value to charity - find out more on the HMRC website or the Sunday Times webdite 

There are many ways to leave a gift to the work of the Church. Find out more here.

A gift in your Will really could be the gift that makes possible your church’s future!
