Furthering the work of the gospel
Your bequest is significant
It is a great blessing to a church when a God-sent gift comes from the bequest of a saint gone to glory. Leaving a bequest, no matter how large or small, to St Thomas’ Anglican Church is one of the greatest ways you can impact the spread of the gospel.
When making a gift in your will it is important to use the correct legal terminology and therefore you should consult a Solicitor to draft your will which will ensure all your wishes are taken into account.
There are a number of ways that you can make provisions in your will:
A specific amount of money
A percentage of your estate
The residue of your estate
The whole of your estate
Please discuss this with your solicitor and whatever option you choose, you should add words such as: “I give to St Thomas’ Anglican Church, North Sydney (ABN 20 197 630 929) for its general purpose, free of all duties, the sum of $X for which a receipt of the Treasurer, for the time being of the church, will be a sufficient discharge for my executor or trustee.”
If you wish to discuss your plans confidentially, please contact reception on 8908 4800 to speak with our Treasurer.
