Legacies are a lifeline for our parishes.
Each year around 5,000 people leave a gift in their will to a Church of England parish.
In total, parishes receive around £50 million in legacy gifts each year – gifts to finance mission projects, maintain beautiful church buildings and grow faithful communities.
For many people, leaving a gift in their will is a final opportunity to make a lasting gift to God. It is also a way to make a lasting difference to the future of their church and community.
