Guidance on Leaving a Lasting Gift to your Church:
“The Diocese has made a new leaflet available to all 227 parishes to assist people who may want to consider leaving a legacy to the Church. At the back of your church you should find copies of the new leaflet. Please do take one and consider whether you, or someone you know may wish to support the Church in this way. Thank you and God bless. ”
