How you can help your Church to grow and serve
A Lasting Gift
It is important for everyone – old and young, to make a will and review it regularly. After making provision for your family, we hope that you will consider making provision for your church of St Andrew’s.
Your gift, no matter how large or small, can be an expression of your love, gratitude and thanksgiving towards God. As such, it will be used to make a real difference to the lives of people in our parish and beyond, helping to maintain our ministry and transform its future.
May God bless you,
Revd Frances Trickey
All things come from you, and of your own we give you’

Our Legacy Policy
Many people give regularly to St Andrew’s so that we can carry out God’s mission and ministry in the parish. We are stewards of everything we own, and lasting gifts in wills are a natural part of Christian giving.
Since needs change over the years, we encourage gifts to be left for the general purposes of the church rather than for a specific purpose. We will then discuss the possible use of gifts with executors, bearing in mind the giver’s known areas of interest in the church and the church’s priorities at the time.
Our promise is to use all gifts to further our mission to share the love of Christ. In this way, you can be confident that your gift will have a lasting effect, both now and for generations to come.
“I give ……% of my residuary estate, OR I give the sum of £….. (pounds only) free of all taxes, to the Parochial Church Council of the Parish of St Andrew’s, Oxshott (UK Registered Charity No 1128379) in the Diocese of Guildford, and I declare that the receipt of an officer of the Parochial Church Council shall be sufficient discharge to my executors and trustees.”
