Why make a will?
Thinking about life after death should not be difficult for Christians!
Make sure you are prepared practically as well as spiritually.
Whatever your age, write a will and keep it up to date.
Changing lives after death
At St Wilfrid’s the PCC’s policy is to use legacies to help fund significant development projects in the parish.
As circumstances change over the years, it may not be possible to fulfil specific donor requests, so church members are encouraged to leave gifts in their wills for the general purposes of the parish. The PCC will discuss with executors the most appropriate use of the gift in the light of current projects and the donor's known areas of interest in the church (eg children & youth, music, buildings).
We have been greatly blessed with gifts left to the church:
Whether large or small, gifts left to St Wilfrid’s makes a real difference to our mission and our ministry.
