St. Catherine’s does not receive money from the German state or the Church of England. The cost of the chaplain’s salary, the Anglican Centre, all our activities and outreach missions … are supported entirely by voluntary contributions from members, friends and those who wish to support God’s work in this small corner of Stuttgart.
Would you like to help St. Catherine’s in this way? If so, you can place cash donations in the offering plate during the service each Sunday – if you wish to receive a donations certificate for German tax purposes please put your donation in a named envelope. Or you can make a one off or regular donation by bank transfer to this account: Kontoinhaber : Friends of the English Church e.V. IBAN: DE67 5206 0410 0000 4022 22 BIC: GENODEF1EK1 Bank: Evangelische Bank
If you put your address on the transfer form, we’ll also send you a donations certificate. If you have any further questions, please ask us, in person or via firstname.lastname@example.org
The Finance Team Jackie and Susanna
As we are not recognised as an official Kirche, many years ago the church council constituted a Verein, the Friends of the English Church e.V., to be the legal entity which represents St. Catherine’s and ensure its charitable status in Germany.
Please consider the fact that cheques (checks) made out in dollars often incur high banking fees, so not all your donation will go to the work of the Church if you give in this way.
