Giving

Why we give

As God has been gracious and generous to us (2 Cor 8:9) and did not spare His only Son to purchase our salvation, we should be like Him and give to Word-based ministries as best we are able. We give priority to Word-based ministries because we want people to hear the gospel and not just get temporary relief. We also know that only Christians will support such ministry and that it will last when all else fades away.

 

We need everyone to support the financial load, as good stewards of what God has given us.

Estate planning

Leaving a bequest to St Thomas’ Anglican is a great way to impact the spread of the gospel.

When making a gift in your will it is important to use the correct legal terminology and therefore you should consult a solicitor to draft your will which will ensure all your wishes are taken into account.

 

There are a number of ways that you can make provisions in your will:

  • The whole of your estate
  • The residue of your estate
  • A percentage of your estate
  • A specific amount of money
 
Please discuss this with your solicitor and whatever option you choose, you should add words such as: “I give to St Thomas’ Anglican Church, North Sydney (ABN 20 197 630 929) for its general purpose, free of all duties, the sum of $X for which a receipt of the Treasurer, for the time being of the church, will be a sufficient discharge for my executor or trustee.”
 
If you wish to discuss your plans confidentially, please contact us to speak with our Treasurer.
