Ways to Support St John's Ministry

While there are many ways to support the ministry of St John's through volunteering time and talent (see the Serve page for more information), our ministry of worship and outreach also requires financial resources.  Our budget covers staff costs (including clergy, the director of music, the parish administrator, and the outreach staff), utilities, worship and education program costs, and food, supplies, etc for our Community Ministries outreach.  Your generous donation will ensure that St John's can continue to provide meaningful worship and study opportunities to nourish parishioners in their spiritual life and to operate the vital outreach ministries that provide meals, gathering space, fellowship, shelter, and access to social and health services to vulnerable people in our community.  As St John's is a registered charity with the Canadian Revenue Agency, we issue tax receipts for all donations of $20 or more.  Receipts are issued in early February for all donations made in the previous calendar year, with the exception of donations made through Canada Helps, which receive an electronic receipt as soon as the donation is made.

  • Online Giving through Canada helps

    Canada Helps is an online giving portal for Canadian charities that allows donors to make one-time or monthly donations using a credit card or PayPal.  It is possible to specify on the donation page where you would like your donation to be applied (e.g. to Warming Room Community Ministries, a donation in memory of someone, the Rector's Discretionary Fund, etc.).  Click on the logo to the left to be taken to St John's page at Canada Helps (this will take you away from our website).

  • pre-authorised giving

    Donors can set up monthly donations to St John's either by debiting their bank account directly or charging the donation to a credit card.  If you're interested in doing this, please contact the church office by email or by calling 705-745-7624.

  • envelope giving

    Members of the parish have access to boxes of envelopes with each Sunday and holy day's date pre-printed on the envelope.  Each envelope donor is assigned a number for confidentiality and a tally is kept by the counters each week of how much each donor gave.  Envelopes are placed on the offering plate during the worship service.  Donations may be made by cash or cheque.  Envelopes can be requested from the church office.

  • donation by cash or cheque

    One-time donations by cash or cheque are always gratefully received.  They can be dropped off in person at the office or mailed to the church (99 Brock St, Peterborough ON  K9H 2P2).  Cheques should be made out to St John's Anglican Church.
