How to give


The majority of St John's funding comes from the generous donations of parishioners, supplemented by fundraising events and bequests. Ruth and the PCC would like to thank everyone who has given and continues to give. It costs a little over £10,000 a month to pay all the bills at St John's. Neither the government nor the diocese pay towards the costs of running a church, so it can be hard to balance the books. 

You can give to St John’s in a number of ways:

  • Use the “Donate Now” button to the right to make a credit card payment

  • Set up a monthly donation: talk to Andy, our Treasurer, if you’d like to do this – see Contact details

  • Donate by cash or cheque (payable to St John's Sandiway) at any service 

  • Donate by card if you are attending a service of event at the church hall

  • Add a legacy to a will

  • Use text giving: Text FAITH to 70470 to donate £5. Or to donate a different amount, text FAITH followed by the amount you would like to donate, e.g. FAITH10 (without spaces) to donate £10


If you have any questions, would like more information about the church’s finances, or would like to get involved in helping the finance team, please talk to Andy or one of the wardens: see Contact details.
