Ways you can help support the work of St. John’s Toorak

Since 1859 St. John’s Toorak has relied entirely on the generosity of donors to support its activities. These donations ensure the upkeep of our heritage listed church building, church hall, payment of clergy and staff salaries and contributions to the Anglican Diocese of Melbourne which in turn supports the wider mission of the church.

Your donation of whatever size will support the continuation of this work for
another 160 years. Please do give generously and know that your support is greatly appreciated.

Organ & Music Program

You can support the music program at St. John’s by donating to the Gibb Fund.

St. John’s Toorak is blessed to have a Choir and Director of Music who perform at our Sunday services. Our organ is one of the  best and most historic in Australia. Your donation towards the Music program at St John’s ensures the upkeep of our organ, the purchase of musical scores and the honorarium which each choir member receives.

The Gibb Fund was founded in memory of Mrs. William Gibb for the support and encouragement of the choir at St. John’s.

Donations should be made to Melbourne Anglican Cultural Organisation (MACO) via the Melbourne Anglican Foundation (MAF).

*Donations to The Gibb Fund via MACO over $2 are tax deductible*

Be sure to select “Melbourne Anglican Cultural Organisation Inc (MACO)” at the “To:” dropdown menu, and then select “St. John’s Toorak – Cultural program” from the “Program:” dropdown menu.

This video with some background into the instrument, what we are having done, and why this is necessary has been filmed and expertly produced by parishioner Brendan Jacobs. 

I wish to extend my very grateful thanks to the generous donors to the Gibb Fund; and to Brendan for the many hours of work involved in volunteering to produce this info-mational.
