Remembering the Church in your Will is a wonderful way both to thank God for the blessings that you have received and to help the Church to meet the needs of future generations.
- Thinking about life after death should not be difficult for Christians! Make sure you are prepared practically as well as spiritually. Whatever your age, write a Will and keep it up to date.
- If you die without a Will, your loved ones could face a lot of trouble and expense, and a court could decide how your property is divided.
- Many Christians give regularly and proportionately from their income. Why not give proportionately from your estate too?
- A gift in your Will helps our churches to live out our dreams and mission in this community.
- It's a way to thank God for all the gifts of life and faith - and to hand them on to future generations.
- Leaving a gift in your Will can reduce the amount of inheritance tax payable on your estate.
The Church of England has recently launched a new Legacy Service, through which:
- You can specify the parishes, cathedrals, dioceses and other charities you would like to benefit from your gift, or the kind of work you would like your gift to support.
- You can direct how the recipients should use your gift.
- You can change your mind about where you'd like the gift to go at any time. You can write a new letter of wishes whenever you want to, without having to change your will.
- The service is free, offered by the church to make it easier for you.
You can discuss legacies in confidence with the Treasurer.
