Our Parish’s principal financial support comes from its parishioners. This is supplemented by fundraising activities throughout the year. This equips the Parish to provide stipends for its clergy, maintain its churches and grounds and all operational costs.
Collections are taken at most services, however it is extremely helpful for the Parish if regular giving is made through the direct transfer system.
Our account details for direct giving are:
Wills and Bequests
Generosity through wills and bequests can make a significant difference to the viability of parishes and their mission. For many of us, making a gift through our will presents an opportunity to make an exceptional gift that we could not normally afford. Whether you might consider leaving a large legacy or a smaller gift, your generosity and support for the Parish is appreciated.
Should you wish to leave a gift to the Parish through your will, the Diocese recommends the following form:
“I give and bequeath the sum of $…. (or a percentage or the residue of my estate) to The Anglican Diocese of Canberra and Goulburn for the general charitable and religious purposes of the parish of Manuka, South Canberra and the receipt of the Diocesan General Manager shall be a sufficient discharge to my executive or trustee.”
