We encourage members to give generously and regularly to both our local Church budget and the missionaries and causes we support. We do this out of thanksgiving for God’s generosity towards us, and out of a shared desire to witness to Jesus in our community.
For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sake he became poor, so that you through his poverty might become rich.
2 Corinthians 8:9
Local Church Giving
There are two primary ways to give: (1) direct debit and (2) cash on Sundays. Direct debit is preferred because it is easier to manage and usually more reliable and predictable. The Church bank account details are as follows:
- Acct Name: Parish of Picton and Wilton Anglican
- BSB: 062654
- Acct Number: 10245901
You can give to our link Missionaries by specifying ‘mission’ in the direct debit description, or by labelling an envelope. CMS envelopes are available at Church.
Beyond our local Church we encourage support of the Church Missionary Society and Compassion. Click through to their own websites for information about how to give to them. In particular we support Kevin and Karen Flanagan as they prepare to head out with CMS beginning 2018.
We seek to be transparent and accountable in our management of finances – having our accounts audited annually and reported on at our Annual General Meeting. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask!
