Holy Trinity Church Cannes is not financially supported in any way by the Church of England, or our Patrons, the Inter Continental Church Society, or indeed by any other outside body – instead we depend almost entirely on the support of our members and also our visitors. Without regular income from our members we could not pay our chaplain and keep our church open – in other words without this support our church cannot carry out God’s work on the Cote d’Azur. Over three-quarters of our income is from giving by our members and friends, with the rest generally coming from other church activities.
We thank God for all those who support the church however great or small their gift.
The best and most beneficial way of giving to our church is by regular planned giving. This enables us to know how much income we are going to receive and so to budget realistically. It may also help you by reducing your taxable income (if you are a French or US taxpayer) or by enhancing the value of your gift (if you are a UK taxpayer). The appropriate forms are available to download below. It is essential that you also advise Holy Trinity Church Cannes of the amount and timing of your gift(s) in order to enable the funds to be correctly applied.
If you would like to make a ‘one-off’ or even a repeating donation, clicking the button below will take you to our Church’s page on Yapla, where you can (securely) make a gift directly into our bank account. The first page has text in English, the rest is in French, but very easy to follow.
Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.2 Corinthians 9:7–8
