Supporting St Jude’s

Financial giving is an important way of taking part in God’s work of reaching our parish and the world with the good news of Jesus. It is also pleasing to our heavenly Father. Paul writes to the Philippians that their gifts were “a fragrant offering, a sacrifice acceptable and pleasing to God (Philippians 4:18).

The ministry of St Jude’s depends on the prayerful support of our members and friends. There are three main methods of giving to St Jude’s.

General offertory (electronic or cash)

The best way to support St Judes’ ministry is to set up a regular electronic payment to the church bank account. Details are as follows:

Bank: Westpac
BSB: 032-056
Account No.: 111857

The offertory is an important part of our Sunday gatherings, and many members contribute in this way (by cash or cheque). Weekly envelopes provide a way of keeping your giving regular even when you miss a week.

Restoration Fund (tax deductible)

The entire St Jude’s site, featuring three beautiful sandstone and slate buildings (church, rectory and Old Borough Chambers), as well as its charming old hall and historic cemetery, is listed on the State Heritage register. Our Restoration Fund is a special fund, established through the National Trust, for the restoration and maintenance of these important buildings.

The fund has made possible an extensive and ongoing restoration program, including on our stonework, brickwork, organ and graves.

You can contribute to the Restoration Fund either by cheque (made out to “St Jude’s Randwick Restoration Fund”) or by electronic transfer:

Bank: Westpac
BSB: 032-044
Account No.: 173495

Because gifts to the Restoration Fund are tax deductible, please also send us an email with your address so that we can send you a tax receipt.

Remembering St Jude’s in your will

A bequest is a wonderful way to provide for gospel ministry to continue after your earthly life is complete. Andrew, our rector, can provide suggested wording to go into your will, to ensure that your gift to the parish is effective. You should also seek advice from your solicitor.
