Here are some stories of projects from across the Church, that have been made possible through a legacy gift.
The bells of All Saints’ Church Lightwater were rededicated at its Harvest Festival services on October 2013 after being restored using a substantial legacy from two parishioners.
A ground-breaking, multi-functional three metre wide ‘invisible’ screen has been installed at Christ Church Guildford following a legacy left by a member of the congregation.
A joint legacy of £32,000 from Laurie and Margaret Edwards to St Margaret's in Ormesby led to a full refurbishment of the church including new lighting.
In 2010, Jack and Babs Bearne left a gift in their Will to St Michael's Church, Alphington, in the Diocese of Exeter. Their generosity has had a transformational impact on the life of the church.
“Church is a family, its where good friends are”. Steve decided to leave a legacy to his 900 year-old church to ensure that the church survives for future generations.
By leaving a gift in her Will to St Peter’s, Tricia wants to ensure that future generations will also hear about Christ and receive his blessings. Such generosity is a wonderful commitment to the work of God in a parish.
