Leaving a Lasting Legacy

Leaving a gift in your Will is an amazing opportunity to make a final gift to God, whether to your church, parish, benefice, cathedral, or diocese. This will make a lasting difference to the future of the Church of England in your local community.


No matter how big or small, every gift in every Will can make a significant impact on a church’s mission and ministry. Gifts in Wills are an important part of Christian giving and leaving a gift to a church is a way to thank God for all the blessings you have received in your lifetime.


Legacy gifts can be used to fund mission and ministry projects, help to maintain beautiful and historic church buildings, and ensure faithful people can be at the heart of local communities in the Diocese of Manchester for years to come.


Parishes in the Church of England benefit from over 5,000 people who have decided to leave a gift in their Wills each year. This means over £50 million in legacy gifts is left to the church each year.


Writing a Will, and planning your funeral, are two simple acts of good stewardship. God entrusted us to use his gifts wisely, for the good of our loved ones, our church family, and the wider world. In thanksgiving, we should also take Will writing

seriously – setting our affairs

in order and stewarding them

wisely to the end of our time

on earth and beyond.
