Let's Talk About Legacies, A webinar to equip Clergy and Church Leaders with the skills to confidently talk about death, dying and legacies - With Stewardship Officers Becky Nicholson and Dan Langdon Griffiths
Legacy income to Christian Aid is 22% of their overall income.
In the Church of England it is 6%.
It’s not easy to talk about legacies is it? It means we have to think about our own mortality and for many people this can be uncomfortable and often difficult.
Join us at this frank and friendly webinar where we will give you plenty of simple ideas about how to ‘drip’ small legacy messages into your church life, as well as some more bold activities that enable your congregations to explore death and dying.

Let's Talk About Legacies, A webinar for congregations to hear how a gifts in wills can transform ministry and mission in church - With Stewardship Officers Becky Nicholson and Dan Langdon Griffiths
Once you have made provision for your loved ones, you have the opportunity to make a lasting gift to God, by leaving a legacy to His church. A gift in your Will to your local church is one of the most valuable and lasting ways you can continue to support its mission and ministry within your community.
A gift can be an expression of your gratitude and thanksgiving towards God, and can help keep your local church alive, and help transform its future.
Hear how a gift in your will can transform ministry and mission in your church.
