Giving is a joy and a privilege for Christians. We offer our whole lives to God, and money is a part of that.
St John’s has been amazingly blessed through people’s financial support and committed giving over the past five years, and we could not be the church we are without the generosity of so many people.
Tax-efficient and flexible financial giving at St John’s is managed by a Christian Charity called Stewardship Services UK.
How does it work?
You give to Stewardship … Stewardship manage the financial transaction with you and the related Gift Aid Claim … You then request Stewardship to give this money to St John’s. Stewardship use a ‘Direct Debit’ which means that you can request them to make any relevant changes, at any time you wish. Once your account is setup, you may choose to use it for other support for St John’s, related to courses, activities, special campaigns etc. (Please note, your support can only be intended as a gift and is not to fund the basic cost of attending a course, event or activity.)
How do I set it up?
1. Using Paper: A simple paper form is available at church.
2. Online: Set up a Stewardship Giving Account online and set up a Monthly Gift. Then, arrange Stewardship to give this Gift (including Gift Aid if possible please) to St John’s Hampton Wick.
How do I make changes?
You may make any changes to your giving, via the online tool. You may also email, call or write to Stewardship on firstname.lastname@example.org or 020 8502 5600. If you have any further problems or questions please contact the Church Office on 020 8977 7733.
How do I make a one-off gift?
If you don’t want to set up a Stewardship Account, you can make one-off gifts via our give.net site.
We have set up our church to receive funds through a site called easyfundraising.org.uk. It’s very straightforward to use, the idea being that as you spend money on over 2000 internet shops – e.g. Amazon, Next, M&S, Argos etc, they donate a percentage of what you spend directly to your chosen cause. An example percentage is Amazon give up to 1.5% on purchases and St John’s gets 100% of the amount they give.
