St. Catherine’s does not receive money from the German state or the Church of England. The cost of the chaplain’s stipend, 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? Planned Giving, as an expression of our discipleship, also helps us draw up our budget. You can download a form here.
You can also place cash donations in the offering plate during the service each Sunday (during Corona times we are encouraging Online Giving only please) – 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: DE39 6009 0100 0587 2530 02
Bank: Volksbank Stuttgart
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 email@example.com
The Finance Team
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.
Arrangements can also be made for those wishing to give from other countries because they no longer live in Stuttgart / Germany – please contact
Ideas for legacy or patronage giving can be found here.
