A Lasting Gift to your Church

After you have made provision for your friends and family, we hope you’ll consider a gift in your will to a church that has been special to you. Leaving a gift in your will to your church will help it serve the needs of your community long into the future. Our churches depend on the generosity of these gifts to carry out much needed refurbishments, launch outreach projects, grow their ministry and ministry.

Gifts in wills are already funding the work of God’s Kingdom and making a huge difference. A legacy left to St Michael’s Church, Alphington has transformed the building inside and out, providing a new suite of rooms that plays host to children’s and youth work, a community café and new space for the bellringers.

Planning Your Funeral

No matter how far away it may be, thinking about your own funeral service now and making your wishes known can be a comfort to you and your family in all sorts of ways. If you’re thinking about sorting out your own funeral service plan, Your Church Funeral Planning Tool offers guidance on how to do that, and how it can really help your family when the time comes.

Your Funeral Wishes Planner
