Our church continues to grow in so many ways, and is readily evidenced by the increasing numbers in our worship services and those that are attending our activities and programs. We also have three ministry agents and our Church Office within our Ministry Staff, and that has given us additional resources to develop and capitalise on our existing and new missional and outreach opportunities. Through your time and talents, we serve on committees, provide leadership and work within various programs and activities (see Activities & events).
All of this requires financial support, and if these works are to continue and grow, you are asked to prayerfully review and consider the level of your financial gift to our Church. If you wish to financially support The Gap UC, there are several ways you can help.
During the time of COVID, giving in person during services is not an option. Where possible we ask that people move to supporting our congregation using electronic means (Pushpay, Direct Debit or Direct Credit/Periodic Giving below). If this is not an option for you, giving can be received via the Church Office however we request that this is in the form of a cheque wherever possible.
Regular Giving via Direct Debit
There are a number of benefits:
- Easy way to ensure your regular contributions continue whether or not you’re able to attend church every week;
- Provides a more consistent level of income from which we can then commit funds to our mission and outreach programs;
- Reduces the amount of cash we have on premises.
Regular giving is a simple process of completing the Direct Debit Form (pdf), and nominating the amount you want debited on a regular basis. For more information, see our Direct Debit information flyer (pdf).
For one off donations, the following bank details can be used to transfer money direct. This can be done for a specific program/cause or simply for general use. The Gap UC specifically encourages a donation during it's annual Spring Sunday.
Account Name: UCA The Gap Tithing
Account Number: 10331287
Don't forget to include information in the reference field if you need to specify what it is.
