Supporting Holy Trinity

By Giving Donations

T
The costs of running Holy Trinity are met almost entirely by generous giving from members of the congregation. Our annual operating budget is a little more than €300,000, which is more than €800 per day. You can see the spending is broken down approximately in pie-chart.

The church’s financial affairs are overseen by a Finance Committee and the Church Council which receives a regular finance reports. A full financial report is presented to the AGM each year.

Congregational members seeking to support Holy Trinity are encouraged to make a financial commitment via a pledge (typically monthly). We encourage use of regular bank transfer, even for relatively small sums, as the easiest way for the church to receive financial support. Pledges or one-off donations can be made to the our bank account.
