A gift in your Will really can make a difference. Our churches depend on the generosity of these gifts as they enable us to carry out much needed refurbishments, launch outreach projects, and grow the Church of England's ministry.
Here are some stories of projects from across the Church, that have been made possible through a legacy gift.
