Lasting Gift

How you can make a Lasting Gift to our Parish

Dear Friends

Your Parish, Your Gift

Many people give regularly to the mission and ministry of the parish. We are stewards of everything we own, not just our income. Gifts in wills are a natural part of that giving. They are a valuable and lasting way to invigorate the lives of St. Catherine’s and St. Peter’s and transform their future.

Our Legacy Policy

The policy of the PCC 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 your will for the general purposes of the Parish or a specific church building, rather than for a restricted purpose. The PCC 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).

3 Simple Steps

We encourage every adult church member to:

  1. Make a will and review it regularly.
  2. Consider leaving a gift to our parish.
  3. Request a free information pack.

It has always been a great encouragement whenever someone has left a gift in his or her will to our Church. It’s their testimony to the faithfulness, goodness and generosity of God and their thankfulness for the life of St. Catherine’s and St. Peter’s. I want to encourage everyone in our church family, old and young, to make a will, review it regularly, and consider the difference a gift in your will could make.  Thank you, The Revd Andrew Hall, Rector.

Suggested wording for your will:   

“I give % of my residuary estate OR I give the sum of £ (pounds only) free of all taxes to the Parochial Church Council of the parish of Burbage with Aston Flamville in the Diocese of Leicester, RegisteredCharity No. 1132266, and I declare that the receipt of an officer of the Parochial Church Council shall be a sufficient discharge to my executors and trustees.”

We strongly advise you see a solicitor when writing or amending your will.


“LORD our God, all this abundance that we have provided for building you a temple for your Holy Name comes from your hand, and all of it belongs to you.”

1 Chronicles 29


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 PCC has written a Legacy Policy confirming that, however large or small, they will use your gift to make a real difference to our church.
