Our Legacy Policy

Here at St Mary’s Church we welcome all gifts in wills, however large or small, and we promise to use your gift to make a difference in our parish.
Our PCC legacy policy is to use gifts to help fund significant projects, whether buildings, equipment or mission.
Since needs change over the years, we encourage you to leave a gift in your will for the general purposes of the parish rather than for a restricted purpose.
We will discuss possible uses of your gift with your executors, when the time comes, bearing in mind your known areas of interest in the church (e.g., music, buildings, children and young people, overseas mission or aid) and the church’s priorities at the time.
You can be confident that your gift will be used to make a real contribution to our future mission and ministry.
We will acknowledge gifts in whatever way the donor and/or his/her executors feel most appropriate. Equally, we can ensure that the gift remains anonymous if the donor prefers.
If you would like to talk to someone in confidence about the types of project your gift might fund, and how/if you would like your gift to be acknowledged, please contact Mrs Dorothy Barnett, our Hon. Treasurer, on 01260 274089 or email: astburyhouse@yahoo.com.
If you would like to make a gift to our church in memory of a loved one, please do come and discuss this with us too.
