Thank you for thinking of donating to Saint John the Divine Anglican Church. Donations from people like you make it possible for the Church to maintain its infrastructure and provide much appreciated help and services to less fortunate people in downtown Victoria. Our Church has enjoyed support from Parishioners and guests for over 150 years through the kind and generous donation of time, treasure and talent.

Speaking of treasure, there are many ways you can provide financial support to St. John’s. We have identified 4 ways to donate. To learn more about a specific method, please click on the method’s name. The next page that appears will explain how the method works. You can donate by:

  3. Direct Debit: Authorize the Church to withdraw a specified amount of money from your bank account once or twice per month.
