St Mark's Legacy Policy

Legacy Policy St Mark’s Church, Worsley

At St Mark’s we welcome gifts in Wills, however large or small, and we promise to use your gift to make a difference for the purposes of our church.

Our DCC Legacy Policy is to use legacies to maintain the Church fabric and grounds and additionally to help fund significant development projects, whether buildings, equipment or staff.

Since needs change over the years, we encourage you to leave a gift in your Will for the general purposes of the church rather than for a restricted purpose. We will discuss possible use of your gift with your executor(s) when the time comes, bearing in mind your known areas of interest in the church (e.g. music, buildings, children and youth, overseas mission or aid) and the church’s priorities at the time.

Unless you give express consent the legacies for the general purpose of St Mark’s will not be used to fund obligations outside the church.

You can be confident that your gift will be used to make a real difference to our future mission and ministry.

We will acknowledge gifts in whatever way the donor and / or their executor(s) feel most appropriate. Equally, we can make sure that gifts remain anonymous if the donor prefers.

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.
