Wills and Legacies

At St. Mary's  we welcome all gifts in Wills, however large or small, and  we promise to use your gift to make a difference in our parish. Our PCC legacy policy is to use gifts to help fund significant development projects, whether buildings, equipment or staff. Since needs change over the years, we encourage you to leave a gift in your Will for the general purposes of the parish rather than for a restricted purpose. We will discuss possible uses of your gift with your executors when the time comes, bearing in mind your known areas of interest in the church (e.g. music, buildings, children and youth, overseas mission or aid) and the church's priorities at the time. You can be confident that your gift will be used to make a real difference to our future mission and ministry. We won't spend it on parish share or paying the gas bill! We will acknowledge gifts in whatever way the donor and/or his/her executors feel most appropriate too. Equally, we can make sure that gifts remain anonymous if the donor prefers. If you would like to talk to someone in confidence about the sorts of purposes your gift might fund, and how you would like your gift to be acknowledged, contact  the Wills and Legacies Officer at church via our website or by asking a member of the PCC or Sidesperson for the Wills and Legacies Officer to contact you. If you would like to make a gift to our church in memoriam, please come and discuss this with us too. It can be a wonderful and appropriate way to remember a loved one.
The Church of England has a very informative website that is well worth visiting :- www.churchlegacy.org.uk
