Donations assist in the ministry of the church and building maintenance such as the restoration of our beautiful stained glass windows. Donations may be made in various ways that give you choice for your preferred method.
The meaning of the word donation is usually thought of as presenting a gift, however, it has also in tradition been thought of as ‘sending’. When someone is in need, our donation is sent as an active way to help those in need. We have a vital connection between our giving and others receiving. It works. By utilising our Church for a way of sending to others, you are assured of correct use of funds and safe involvement.

Service Collection Envelopes or Cash

Giving is an important part of Christian life. As we journey in our faith, we come to recognise that our lives and what we have are as a result of God’s blessings to us. Sharing this blessing comes naturally.
Giving a proportion of our finances, or our personal time to others, is a clear expression of this, understanding that in the end all belongs to Him.
For financial budgeting purposes we encourage people to use the facility offered by ANFIN for regular direct debits, or for regular church service members to make use of the collection envelopes.
However you decide to contribute financially, it is up to you, and of course between you and God. We make no expectations of you, and for those with no regular jobs we understand your capacity to give is often in other ways, or according to your means from week to week. Someone who gives $5 may be giving as much in love and care for God’s work as someone who gives $50. No record is kept of who gives what or how often. All money received goes to the ministry of St Augustine’s Anglican Church Hamilton and its nominated outreach and services.
We may not say often enough our appreciation for your assistance, particularly for the hard work in events such as the Jumble Sales that are crucial to the church funds. We are a big historic building with large lawns and various assets such as the pipe organ. We have a considerable project before us with the restoration of the stained glass windows – and all of this take’s physical work from volunteers, and our finances.
Not only do these contributions go toward the ongoing cost of ministry in this parish, the church and its functioning, but we also commit to giving each year to a number of organisations. Please help us to give generously. Organisations include the Anglican Board of Missions, Anglicare, Endeavour Foundation, St Francis College, 139 Club for the homeless, Youth Housing Project, Bush Ministry, Women’s Hostel, The Mission to Seafarers, St Alban’s Wilston, St Mary’s Home in Toowong, Holy Trinity Church in Fortitude Valley, St Stephens Coorparoo, Mater Mothers’ Hospital, and more.
We also, on behalf of the church thank you for your materials given, such as food and clothing – consider our Pantry Kitchen :-)
