How you can give

The church clock

People give to St John of Jerusalem Church in all sorts of different ways – by becoming part of this community, through the gift of their time, in their care for others, through wise suggestions about how the community can usefully change and grow.

(Pictured right: Our church clock – recently transformed through the generosity of the congregation and wider community.)

They also give financially. It costs over £4,000 a month, nearly a £1,000 a week to run this church. Every year we raise £37,500 to pay in to the 'Common Fund' of the Diocese of London and some £20,000 to cover our utilities, insurance and maintenance costs. The amount we pay in to the Diocese is approximately 50% of our true costs and we aim to reduce our level of subsidy every year.

Please help us to cover these costs in any way you can. Here are a few suggestions:

  1. You can put cash into the collection. If you are a taxpayer, however you give (using cash or any other means) - please ask for a Gift Aid form or envelope
  2. You can fill out a standing order form and give through your bank account
  3. If you are working, you can set up payroll giving at your workplace
  4. You can ask for a box of 52 envelopes and choose how much you would like to give per week
  5. You can leave a legacy in your will

And thank you! We really do appreciate your contribution.
