Giving

At St Mark’s, giving is entirely voluntary. We model our giving principles on 2 Corinthians 9:7-8, “Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to make all grace abound in you , so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work” (NIV).

The money given to St Mark’s goes to pay our staff team, resource our ministries and run and maintain our buildings. We have a strong commitment to financially supporting local, national and overseas missions, including the support of the wider Anglican Church and the Ridley Theological College in Melbourne.

So “thank you” for being willing to support the work of St Mark’s. You can give financially through the following facilities:

1. Periodic Payment

Via internet banking you can instruct your financial institution to make periodic payments into St Mark’s account using the following account details;

Account name: St Marks Church Camberwell
Bank: Westpac
BSB: 033 039
Account: 862 485

Alternatively, download our direct debit form and instruct your bank accordingly.

2. Parish Giving via ADF (Anglican Development Fund)

Allows electronic transfer via direct debit from your financial institution. For more information please email adf@adfmelbourne.org.au or

3. Offertory Envelopes or Cash at Sunday Services

Weekly offertory envelopes are available in the church. Please contact church staff, or the office.

4. Bequests

Bequests are made through your Will and would normally be arranged for you by your legal advisor. You may make St Mark’s the beneficiary of cash, securities, and/or other property. You may designate specific amounts or a percentage of your estate, or you may make St Mark's a residual beneficiary of your estate, that is, a recipient of some part of the balance after payment of specific bequests, expenses, and taxes. An unencumbered bequest is the most flexible way to benefit the future generations of our church.
