How you can make a lasting gift to your Parish
Many people give regularly to the life and work of the three parishes for Horsford, Felthorpe and Hevingham.
We are stewards of everything we own, not just our income, and gifts in wills are a natural part of that giving. They are a valuable and lasting way to invigorate the life of the three Parish churches and transform their futures.
A gift in your will can be an expression of your gratitude and thanksgiving towards God, and can help keep your local church alive, and transform its future. The three Church Council's for Horsford, Felthorpe and Hevingham have written a Legacy Policy confirming that they will use your gift, however large or small, to make a real difference to the church to which you leave your gift.
The policy of the three Church Council's is to use gifts in wills to help fund significant development projects in the Parish. Since needs change over the years, we encourage church members to leave a gift in thier will for the general purposes of the parish, rather than for a restricted purpose. The Rector or Churchwardens 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 (e.g. children and youth, music, buildings).
