The church named in the will you are about to administer is truly grateful, not only to the deceased, by whose generosity their work can continue to grow God’s Kingdom, but also to you, the executor, by whose time and effort the deceased’s generosity may take effect.
We have produced a guidance document to provide further information to executors who are administering a legacy left to a Church of England Parish Church.
Contacting the Beneficiary Church
Once you have contacted the beneficiary church and notified them of the legacy, it may be appropriate to send this document to them, to help with the administration process.
Lighting a candle can be a helpful way to pray for someone. You can do this in a church, or online. An online candle will help you think about someone who has recently passed away and pray for all those who miss them.
