During the COVID-19 pandemic, some of our members are wondering the best ways to continue to financially support the work of the church. While we are grateful and so thankful for any support, we believe that during these unprecedented and difficult times, we also need to be supporting the other groups and community organisations that are working along us – striving to make the world a better place. Therefore this page not only gives information on how to financially support the church but each week we will also give details of how to support a local charity or group (and we will vary this week by week).
Financially Supporting Turramurra Uniting Church.
The easiest and best way to support the church is by directly depositing into our church bank account – either regularly on a scheduled payment or one off. We believe that people should give out of gratitude or because they want to invest in ministry, not out of pressure or guilt. For this reason, our church has a “blind account” for this purpose, meaning you can deposit into this account and we do not see any of your details, so we do not know how much or how regularly people give.
TUC’s Blind Bank Account for Giving Direct is

Act for Peace
Helping some of the millions of Syrian refugees in Jordan by eating the same food rations for a week.
Marion, Bec, Matt and Phil Swain, as well as Anne Cornford are taking on the Ration Challenge 2020 to raise awareness for refugee issues. The idea is that for a week … from 13-19 September … we will only eat the same rations as a Syrian refugee living in a camp in Jordan – just a small amount of rice, flour, lentils, chickpeas, beans, oil and fish (or tofu). We are hoping to raise awareness of refugee issues and also to raise money to help “the least of these”. Money raised will help provide emergency food, hygiene kits and life-saving support to refugees and other conflict and disaster affected communities around the world hit hardest by the coronavirus.We would love other people to join us in the challenge. If you would like to know more or to register to be a part of it just head to https://actforpeace.rationchallenge.org.au/ You will need to register soon so there is time to receive your ration pack in the mail! We would really love for you to be part of this experience with us! I am not saying it will be easy (I have to give up coffee for a week!) and it will mean a week of pretty boring and not quite enough food, but we hope it will also be a time of insight and learning and can make a difference for some refugees.If you don’t feel like you can take the challenge, maybe you can consider sponsoring one of us (the more money we raise, we get some bonuses to make the week a little easier).
