Leave a legacy

Spring Harvest has been running Easter teaching and worship events for over 40 years. Over the last five years our feedback has shown that in a typical year over 1,000 people give their lives to Jesus through a Spring Harvest gathering onsite.
Like thousands of others who have been to Spring Harvest, you've probably responded to a call to follow God or have been impacted by the Biblically faithful teaching and inspirational worship or served practically in a significant way through the event.

Which then begs the question... 'What is it worth to change the trajectory of a life for God?'

John D Rockefeller was one of the wealthiest men who ever lived. After he died someone asked his accountant, "How much money did John D. leave?" The reply was classic: "He left...all of it." We can’t take any of it with us. What will your legacy be?

We ask you that you prayerfully consider leaving a gift in your will as a legacy that will change lives and bear fruit for God’s Kingdom for many years to come. Never has there been a greater time to make an impact with the money you leave behind - every pound will make a difference.

How you can leave a legacy to Essential Christian

A legacy is any type of gift left to a person or organisation in a will. If you choose to leave a legacy to Essential Christian, it’s relatively simple to arrange.

If you haven’t had your will written yet, all you have to do is inform your solicitor of your wishes when they draw up the will. If you’ve already made your will and you want to add to it, you can make an amendment (a Codicil) as long as your changes aren’t too extensive. When you visit your solicitor, you will need to give them the following information:

  • Essential Christian’s registered charity number: 1126997
  • Essential Christian’s address: Essential Christian, 14 Horsted Square, Bellbrook Industrial Estate, Uckfield, TN22 1QG

What Type of Gift Can you leave to Spring Harvest in your will?

  • A percentage share of what you have. For example, you might choose to give 10% to charity
  • The remainder of your estate after debts and gifts to others have been paid (known as a Residuary Legacy) These gifts are unaffected by inflation, making your gift go further
  • A fixed sum of money (known as a Pecuniary Legacy) – this kind of gift may well be worth less in years to come, due to inflation
  • A gift, such as a painting or item of jewellery (known as a Specific Legacy) Your solicitor will then be able to help you include the legacy as part of your will.

What wording should you use?

  • For a residuary legacy...
    I give [ _ ] % of the residue of my estate to Essential Christian, Reg. Charity no: 1126997 Address 14 Horsted Square, Uckfield TN22 1QG for its charitable purposes. I further direct that the receipt of a proper officer of Essential Christian for the time being shall be a full and final sufficient discharge for the said legacy.
  • A ‘pecuniary’ fixed amount of money or a specific asset or item...
    I give to Essential Christian, Reg. Charity no: 1126997 whose address is 14 Horsted Square, Uckfield, TN22 1QG the sum of £ [ _ ] / specific asset or item for its charitable purposes. I further direct that the receipt of a proper officer of Essential Christian for the time being shall be a full and final sufficient discharge for the said legacy.

What would you need to give your solicitor?

Once you have prayerfully considered the type and amount of gift you wish to make you will need to put these details in writing to your solicitor. Please add the details of the Essential Christian charity as:- Essential Christian, 14 Horsted Square, Uckfield TN22 1QG registered charity number 1126997
