All ministries at St James is supported by donations given by generous and caring people.  We get no government funding.

Berala is one of the most disadvantaged and poorest areas of Sydney.  Yet within our area we have a huge multicultural community - 80% of our households speak a language other than English.  A significant part of what we do is helping refugees and other recent immigrants.

If you choose to help us financially, you can direct your donation to the General Fund, to our Cross Cultural Ministry Fund (CCMF) or our Building Fund.
