Increasing generosity online
We rely on the generosity of our congregations and communities to support our mission and ministry. Many people give regularly to their local church by Gift Direct but others give in cash when the offering is taken in a church service or when visiting the church. With church buildings temporarily closed your congregation may be looking for opportunities to give online.
