Legacy Giving


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.
