Legacies

At St. Stephen's and St Nicolas Parish - Manor Park, we are doing everything within our powers to make sure that the elderly and the youth in the parish receive the help they need. We are a youthful parish were we believe the youth need help within, in order to keep their faith alive. This could be done by providing healthy grounds were they could play, learn and develop their talents as it should in the world. We are also blessed with an elderly congregation, who have grown, nurtured their talents, but have gone past the ages were there could do everything, by themselves.

We are grateful for all contributions made with regards to these endeavours by the parish, to support the structures so that our children are brought up by the faith.

If you die without making a will, the law decides how your estate will be distributed. Those you wished to benefit may receive nothing at all. Making a will gives you the peace of mind that your assets will be distributed as you would wish.

Making a will is simple, but to make it easier we recommend that you contact a solicitor. We can help you find a solicitor in your area and many of them will give a discount on their normal fees.

Gifts to a Charity are exempt from Inheritance Tax.
