Wording for your Will

Wording for your Will

If you would like to leave a gift to the work of your local parish church, please see the example wording Will Clauses below.

If you would like to leave a gift to another part of the Church of England or multiple bodies, please request a free information pack from the Church Legacy website where example wording will be provided.

You are strongly advised to seek a solicitor when making or revising your Will.
