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:
Account Name: The Church in Liverpool
BSB Number: 302-162
Account Number: 0802808
- No transaction fees with most Australian banks.
- Set up reoccurring donations.
- Lower security risk from less cash handling.
- May not be anonymous (depending on your bank).
There is a locked collections box on site that you can place your cash donations into when you gather with the church each Sunday.
- Encourages church attendance.
- No transaction fees involved.
- Donations are anonymous.
- Increased security risk from having cash on hand.
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
- Enables donations from overseas supporters.
- Set up reoccurring monthly donations.
- Incurs transaction fees.
