Giving to Support Ministry at St Mark’s

Click here for information about our targets for weekly giving in 2017: Giving at St Mark’s in 2017 

St Mark’s Church is completely self-supporting.  Most of our income is provided through regular giving.  This is a scheme whereby members make regular payments to the church so that our expenditure can be planned properly.  For us to function as a viable church we need to have some idea of how much money we are confident of having in our bank account each month (in a similar way to a household budget).  The best way for us to have this confidence is for members to commit to a regular and consistent amount and give it directly. Any amount you can give will be warmly received and appreciated.

It is essential that this scheme be successful in order to resource our ongoing ministry at St Mark’s. Together we have the responsibility of ensuring that St Marks continues to serve the community and provide for faith and worship for all.

You may contribute regularly to the running of St Mark’s by using one of the following methods.

1. Direct Debit through the NAB Bank.

If you choose to use this method, simply make your giving by ‘funds transfer’ from your bank account either as a ‘one off’ or ‘periodic payment’.  Regular contributions are encouraged to facilitate budgeting at St Mark’s.

Bank:               NAB
Account:          Anglican Church Parish of St Mark’s
BSB:                 084-004
Account No.:    50-838-9619

2. Sunday Plate

Collection envelops are now available for you to use for the next 12 months.  These are dated for each Sunday for your convenience.  You are encouraged to bring these to church each Sunday and place them in the plate.  If you are away for any period, the dated envelops allow you to keep track of your regular giving.  If you choose not to use the dated envelops, you may of course place cash or a cheque in the plate.  If you are donating by cheque please make it payable to ‘St Mark’s Anglican Church’.

3. Once-Off Donation not via the Plate

Although regular giving is encouraged, you may of course make once off donations by way of cheques made payable to ‘St Mark’s Anglican Church’ or cash.  You may post these to St Mark’s, C/- 56 Bellevue Tce, Clayfield.4011 or leave them at the Church Office (8 am-1 pm weekdays).

4. Direct Debit through ANFIN (Anglican Financial Services)

Copy and print the form  ANFIN FORM page and complete the relevant section.  This is completely anonymous and secure.  Your donation will be deducted from the bank account as specified by you.  No one from St Mark will not know who the donation comes from unless you tell us separately.  It simply appears on the church bank statement as a ‘direct debit donation’.  If you feel apprehensive about not putting a donation of money in the Sunday plate, ANFIN will supply contribution slips for you to use.  You must request these when you set up your contribution.

ANNUAL APPEAL: Details of the 2016 Appeal can be available in May.
