Why give money to your church? There are several reasons. Giving recognises that everything we have comes from God, the creator of all things, so that when we give, we are really giving back to God what God has generously supplied to us. Our giving is also a way to say thank you to God for everything that God has done for us, especially the great gift of salvation through Jesus Christ. Giving also enables our church to function – to pay the bills and to serve the local community, and to support God’s mission locally and internationally.

Instead of making a financial contribution in person through the weekly “offering plate”, you may choose to set up a regular electronic transfer to St Matthew’s. The parish’s electronic giving details are:

Account Name: Anglican Parish of Georgetown

BSB: 705 077

Account Number: 000 40584

However you give, you can be confident that you gift will be greatly appreciated and prayerfully used.
