Leaving a Gift that lasts

Thank you for considering the Anglican Church in your will.

Your gift will help ensure the future of the church for years to come.

After you have taken care of your family and friends you may like to consider which aspect of church life you would like to support. The choice is yours to make.

To assist you are a series of articles which you may find helpful to guide you in this decision.
These articles detail:

    • why you need a will; 
    • how a bequest ensures the future of work of the church; 
    • and some tips on how you can word your will when giving to the Anglican Diocese of Wellington or your Parish.

Take your time to read these articles and if you are wanting further assistance please contact your Vicar, the Diocesan Registrar or your family solicitor.

We all have gifts, ones given to us by God and those that we give 
back to our family friends, and the world.  
Your gift can carry on the good works of your parish 
or the work of the Wellington Anglican Diocese for years to come.

Loving Father,
We come with praise and thanksgiving for past blessings.
We thank you for those who in past times
have served you faithfully and
have left a heritage for others to enjoy.
We thank you for their vision,
their energy, their loyalty and their generosity.

No reira waiho ko te aroha o Te Matua Kaha Rawa hei korowai mou.
May the love of Almighty God enfold you!
