Finances during COVID19

MESSAGE FROM THE WARDENS

During this challenging time we know that some of our Church members and families will be under financial pressure. If you find yourself or family in financial difficulty, please let the Wardens know. You can contact us confidentially by email wardens@macquarieanglican.org or call on our mobile numbers.

Our church at Macquarie Anglican derives the vast majority of our income from the regular giving of parishioners, and our main expenditure is ministry staffing followed by property maintenance. The Wardens confirm their full commitment to all our current staff as planned for 2020. If you are able to give above your regular offering during this time, that would help offset any reduction in our income.

 

Current Finances - update to end June 2020

We appreciate people’s willingness to continue giving to Macquarie Anglican. Thank you to those who have decided to move over to electronic giving. Those with cash offertories are asked to contact the wardens to arrange collection. We are also thankful that the parish is eligible for significant Federal Government support programmes. 

June results were strong, with a remarkable bounce in offertories restoring YTD offertory to budget, for which we are very grateful.

How to give financially during COVID19

DIRECT DEBIT GIVING TO CHURCH
We believe this is a very good time to consider efficient, safe and regular giving by direct debit (details below). Moving over to direct debit would be a particular help right now.

          Bank: National Australia Bank
          BSB: 082 135
          Account no: 927 596 751
          Account name: Parish of Macquarie
          Reference: Offertory

 

CASH GIVING TO CHURCH
If you still prefer to give by cash, then wardens will undertake to collect your offertory personally. 

 

ONE-OFF ONLINE DONATION TO CHURCH
If you would like to make a one-off donation to the parish, you can do so via our online credit card donation page. Parish credit card transactions are processed securely through Stripe at macang.org/donate 

 

GIVING TO MISSION 
For some years now, the parish's policy has been to encourage members to support our linked mission partners directly, believing this to be the best way to encourage commitment and personal contact. You can find details for giving on our mission partners page
