Ways to Give

Giving FAQ

Am I expected to give money when I attend a service?

  • No – the offering plate is circulated as part of the liturgy to receive donations, but also represents our spiritual practice of giving from our paid labours. You are welcome to make an offering as part of the act of worship, but no one is watching to see if you put something on the plate. Most people give electronically these days.

How can I donate to a specific ministry?

  • Easy – just indicate the ministry in the memo section of the transaction.

Can I trust you with my money?

  • Absolutely – Christ Church has carefully stewarded donations for the past 110 years and counting without incident.

How much am I expected to donate?

  • This is a matter of personal choice, informed by spiritual practice and conscience; there is no minimum value expectation.

  • Traditional tithing (giving 10% of all income) is practiced by some parishioners, some give more. Some give less. What is important is as part of our Christian practice we give; not as a mere token, but as an expression of our gratitude for God’s gifts and support of our community.​

  • Check out this Guidelines for Giving document written by our Stewardship Committee Chair, Richard Tanner.

Will I receive a tax receipt?

  • Christ Church policy is to issue tax receipts for all identifiable sourced donations by end of February annually.

  • For example, cash given without any accompanying identification, (such as in an envelope with a name / address / phone number) can not be sourced to a person, hence no tax receipt would be issued.

What happens to the cash after I put it in the offering plate?

  • Offerings are counted by a separate designated team and then deposited into the bank.

Can I trust you with my credit card information?
