The Offering Plate
The traditional method of contributing to a church is through a regular offering made by placing cash (or cheque) into the collection plate that is passed during the service.
Use of a numbered offertory Church envelope into which to place your cash offering will allow St. Andrew’s to issue you a charitable contribution receipt at the end of the year. You can request envelopes by contacting the church office. Phone 902-405-3163 or email Linda Burrows, office manager at firstname.lastname@example.org
Many members of the congregation prefer to make their weekly gift by using Pre-Authorized Remittances (PAR). Use of PAR solves the problems of arriving at Church with little or no cash, and it pre-authorizes the automatic monthly debit of your bank or credit card account, which will continue until you notify the Church Office of changes.
Information on use of PAR or offertory envelopes can be obtained from Linda Burrows, the Office Administrator email@example.com
A receipt for charitable donations made through PAR will be issued at the end of the year.
