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 unprecidented 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

Supporting Refugee Camps in Cox’s Bazaar, Bangladesh
When violence broke out in Rakhine State in Myanmar in August 2017, more than 700,000 Rohingya people fled for their lives into neighbouring Bangladesh. They joined an additional 200,000 Rohingya refugees who had already been sheltering in the area for several years. It is now estimated that 1.3 million people are living in the refugee camps in Cox’s Bazaar, Bangladesh.
During the week there has been confirmed COVID19 cases in the camps – which is very problematic and has the potential to cause a lot of suffering and death. The organisations who are serving in the region are all asking for extra help to best handle this situation.
