Bequests

Remembering the Church in your Will is truly a gift that keeps on giving and leaves a lasting legacy. It allows you one last opportunity to support the work of the church in a way that you may not have been able to support during your lifetime. This could apply to you (for example) if you are asset rich but income or cash flow poor. When we make our Wills, we can express in them our lifetime habit of giving generously to others by including the church as a beneficiary. It will stand as a testament to your family and loved ones of the values you hold dear.

Get advice
If you are considering a bequest to the Gladstone Church of Christ, you should contact your solicitor for advice on preparing or updating your Will as the correct wording is important. It is also suggested that you seek other professional advice concerning possible taxation issues if leaving shares or real estate.

Please let us know
We understand that making your Will is a very personal matter. If you have already included the church in your Will or are considering doing so, it is a great help if you let us know – particularly if you would like your bequest to be used for a specific purpose that is dear to you. The church leadership would like to hear about your vision and ideas.

Confidentiality assured
All discussions relating to bequests are treated in the strictest confidence.
