St John's, like other parishes of the Church of England, is entirely dependant on voluntary giving to meet our daily needs and expenses, as well as contribute to the mission of the Church in the Diocese of London. The Diocese of London is committed to maintaining its presence in every area of London, rich or poor. This is financed through the Common Fund, where parishes give according to their ability. The Common Fund payment in 2017 is expected to be £78,000.
We encourage our regular worshippers to give by regular standing order, and Gift Aid if they are UK tax payers. You will find both of these forms for downloading via the link below.
The Church of England encourages Church members to give 5% (or £1 in £20) of their after tax income for the work of the Church.
The principles of life affirming giving are:
Give Thanks, Give Regularly, Give Generously, and Give of Yourself.
St John's is a registered charity, number: 1131808.
