Giving to good causes
We give a tithe (around a tenth) of our income to mission organisations and established charities such as Tearfund, Christian Aid and the Barnabas Fund.
We have a Missions Giving Committee that allocates our church giving. If you have a suggestion for a good cause please email the church administrator.
‘Wherever your treasure is, there your heart and thoughts will also be.’
(New Living Translation)
We depend on regular giving by church members to sustain our day-to-day ministry, our work in the community and our giving to charitable and mission groups. It costs St Mark’s approximately £5000 a week to maintain our work.
We encourage all church members to to set aside a proportion of their income for giving to St Mark’s, and to give regularly (monthly or weekly).
We also welcome one-off and occasional gifts by the following methods (let us know if you are a UK taxpayer):
- Cheque: payable to ‘St Mark’s PCC’. Cheques can be posted to the church office: 337 Kennington Park Road, London, SE11 4PW.
- Legacy/Will: please speak to our church administrator, Liandra
- Direct payment: please contact our church administrator who will happily give you our bank details.
- Credit / debit card: payments can be made securely online via Givey.com.
When you make a donation to us, because we are a registered charity, we are able to claim back the tax that you have paid on the donation. This mechanism is called Gift Aid and amounts to an extra 25p for every £1 that you give. You must be a UK taxpayer for your donation to qualify for Gift Aid.
Both ongoing and one-off donations can be made securely via Givey.com.
To set up a standing order direct from your bank account, please fill in this standing order form and return it to the church office: 337 Kennington Park Road, London, SE11 4PW.
