The mission and ministry of St John’s Church are generously funded by its members, but we can only continue to serve God’s transformation of society with financial help.

There are various ways to give money to St John’s. For additional information on any of the topics below please contact our Treasurer, Frank Kelley, on 01323 724881, or

 The most efficient way to give is directly to the church bank account by:

  • Setting up a standing order with your bank – please use one of the Standing Order instructions available in reception or print one here Standing Order CAF.
  • Giving through your employer’s Give As You Earn Scheme – check with your employer’s HR department.
  • Setting up a standing order through a charity agency such as the Charities Aid Foundation (CAF).

These will always be welcome!

On Sundays you can put cash, a charity voucher or cheque (payable to St John’s PCC) into the offering. Please use the Yellow Envelopes (available in the pews or in reception) for this purpose. Alternatively, one-off gifts may be handed in or posted to the Church Office.

If you pay UK tax (Income or Capital Gains Tax) then you can make donations tax-efficiently. By completing a Gift Aid Declaration form (available in reception) you will allow us to claim an additional 25p for every £1 you give.

You may also like to consider making a donation to St John’s in your will. Please ask your solicitor when you make or change your will, or ask us for more information.

As part of a vision to make a difference on a global scale St John’s supports a number of mission partners and agencies around the world. Take a look at our Mission Partnerships page.
