At St Paul’s we are committed to supporting the wider work of God’s Church.

To show our commitment to this we give away 15% of all our General Fund income to be generous in expressing God’s love in both word and deed.

We would like to encourage everyone in St Paul’s to ask God to place on his or her heart a mission organisation to connect with and uphold. A full list of the mission organisations that St Paul’s invests in, on behalf of our congregation, is here.

Mission Giving

Applications are currently closed to the Mission Giving fund. Applications are open to HOMER (the amount of our tithe we have left over to distribute after we have given to our regular mission partners) until 24th April and can only be accepted from members of St Paul’s Church, St Albans. The application form can be downloaded here and helpful instructions can be downloaded here.

What can you do?


Organisations are usually granted assistance for a period of three years, after which the commitment is reviewed. The reviews are taken by the ma:dge group (Mission action: Do, Give, Encourage) on a 3-year rolling programme. Ma:dge makes recommendations to PCC, usually in November and the PCC have the final decisions about how the available money is to be divided.

Funds are allocated across a broad range of needs, suggested by St Paul’s members. 


‘For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me’

Jesus, Matthew 25:35
