St Peter’s needs your support

The church and churchyard are maintained solely by the congregation.  We receive no assistance from Government (apart from Gift Aid on donations to the Church) or the central church.  


The cost to the congregation of maintaining this church and the ministry in Leckhampton is over £2,000 per week.  If you feel that you would like to support us financially in our efforts to maintain this church for future generations you may wish to make a regular or single donation, or consider leaving a legacy to St Peter’s

Leaving a legacy to St. Peter's

We all care about our stewardship of our church, and many of us are regular and generous givers during our lifetime.  However, few of us have probably thought about leaving a legacy for the benefit of St Peter's, so that the church and its parochial activities can benefit after our deaths, when we have no earthly use for our money or other assets.


In keeping with many other churches we have now appointed a Legacies Officer (Richard Collins) who will act as a confidential focal point for anyone who would like to know more about how to make a will (if you do not have one already) or how to add a codicil (a kind of formal "PS") to your existing will so that, if you so wish, you can include a legacy in favour of St Peter's.


Richard can be contacted through the Parish Office.  He can let you have an easy to read information pack which explains why it is important to make, and regularly review, a will, and the different ways in which we can make arrangements to give something to the church that has been such an important part of all our lives.
