The costs of running The Church of Saint John The Evangelist are met almost entirely by generous giving from members of the congregation. Many people don’t realise this but it costs 120€ per day, every day of the year to operate the church. We also support local and international charities.
The church’s financial affairs are overseen by a Finance Committee and the Church Council which receives regular finance reports. A full financial report is presented to the AGM each year. Congregational members seeking to support The Church of St. John The Evangelist are encouraged to make a financial commitment via a pledge (typically monthly).
We encourage use of regular bank transfer, even for relatively small sums, as the easiest way for the church to receive financial support. Pledges or one-off donations can be made to our bank account.

Transfers to the bank account of the Diocese can be made in sterling, please contact Nick Wraight at firstname.lastname@example.org and mention that your gift is for St-John's in Saint-Raphael.
