Legacies are a lifeline for our parishes. Each year around 4,000 people leave a gift in their will to a Church of England parish. In total, parishes receive around £55 million in legacy gifts each year – gifts to finance mission projects, maintain beautiful church buildings and grow faithful communities.
The booklet Gifts of Faith, Hope and Love provides both spiritual and practical information on how to include a gift in your will. It outlines why legacies and will writing is important and the different ways a legacy can be left to the church at a local, regional and national level. It also has a removable insert ‘Preparing to visit your Solicitor’ which individuals can complete and take along to their solicitor or professional will writer.
We encourage parishes to make copies of this booklet available at the back of church for individuals to take away as well as keep a small stock in the PCC Office, in case an individual request a copy directly.
Please note Gifts of Faith, Hope and Love are limited to 30 copies per parish.
