How your gifts are used

St George's is a busy church working on many projects within Holborn and around the world.  In order to continue the work we do, we rely on the generous donations of friends and members and we are very grateful to all those who give.

To get a feel for the kind of things we are passionate about, see our Vision page.

One off donations, cheques (made payable to St George's Holborn) or cash gifts can be sent into the office by post, or given as part of the Sunday collection (any cash gifts over £20 should be put in a gift aid envelope). Or if you have access to internet banking, online payments can be made to the church account (details above).

Text Giving
To donate, text the code STGH00 followed by the amount you want to donate (£2, £5 or £10) to 70070. For example, STGH00 £5. You will be charged you normal SMS rate plus the amount you donate - we receive 100% of your donation.
