Regular financial giving is one of the ways that members of our church express their belonging and partnership with us. Because we receive no external funding, we depend upon our members to support the ministry of our church.
There are three main ways that our members can give to support the ministry of our church:
1. Cash is the giving option preferred by many people. During our Sunday services a collection is taken up; you have the opportunity to contribute to the Parish by taking a set of Pledge envelopes, or by placing a cash amount in the plate.
2. Internet Banking. Many people prefer to electronically deposit their giving directly from their bank account to the church’s bank account. To take up this giving option, you will need the account details, available from the Church Treasurer in person or request via the Yarra Anglicans e-mail. For accounting purposes, it would help us if you would indicate in the ‘Description’ field your family name.
3. Periodical payment. If you do not have access to Internet banking, or you choose not to use this facility, you can make arrangements with your own bank to set up a recurring payment, using the account details above. You would need to contact your bank via telephone or visit your local branch to set this up.
Bequests are made through your Will, and would normally be arranged for you by your legal advisor. You may make Yarrawonga Anglican Parish the beneficiary of cash, securities, and/or other property. You may designate specific amounts or a percentage of your estate, or you may make the Parish a residual beneficiary of your estate, that is, a recipient of some part of the balance after payment of specific bequests, expenses, and taxes. An unencumbered bequest is the most flexible way to benefit the future generations of our church.
