Our church is funded by the donations of our regular members and online supporters. Giving to our church is always voluntary, therefore we do not take up a public collection during church. We strive to keep all donations anonymous and believe this helps to promote the right spirit of giving. 

2 Corinthians 9:7 Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver.

How to Donate

There are 3 ways to donate to our church. They are listed in order of preference below:

Direct Deposit

Account Name: The Church in Liverpool
BSB Number: 302-162
Account Number: 0802808

Advantages

  • No transaction fees with most Australian banks.
  • Set up reoccurring donations.
  • Lower security risk from less cash handling.

Disadvantages

  • May not be anonymous (depending on your bank).

Cash

There is a locked collections box on site that you can place your cash donations into when you gather with the church each Sunday.

Advantages

  • Encourages church attendance.
  • No transaction fees involved.
  • Donations are anonymous.

Disadvantages

  • Increased security risk from having cash on hand.

PayPal

I would only encourage overseas supporters use PayPal. Within Australia, direct deposits are free for most major banks. Whereas PayPal charges the below fees:

Australians: 1.1% + $0.30
International: 2.1% + fixed fee based on country of origin

Advantages

  • Enables donations from overseas supporters.
  • Set up reoccurring monthly donations.

Disadvantages

  • Incurs transaction fees.
