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.
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; many churches 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 to young people, refurbish the kitchen, support an overseas mission partner, preserve your historic church bells, equip the church with new Bibles or vestments, 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.
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!
