From the Finance Committee:
In this extraordinary time of COVID-19 we are aware that some members of the Blackwood Uniting community are concerned about how they can continue giving their offering to the church when there are only online services. Of course, for those who give by eGive, nothing has changed as their offering will continue to be debited automatically from their nominated account. For those who usually give by envelope or in the plate there are a number of possibilities:
- Use internet banking to make an electronic funds transfer to the church’s account.
Account details are BSB 805 007 and Account number 00710955.
Please identify the transfer with the word “Offering”, and also your name (if you wish)
- You may come by the church anytime you are visiting Blackwood and place your envelope or offering in the post box slot near the front offices (behind the bushes near to Michael’s office and the front foyer). This is cleared daily during the working week. There is no need to come into the church building if you do not want to, or for the church office to be open.
- Put your offering aside each week, but keep it at home. Once the church opens again for physical services, or it is convenient for you to come by the church and use the method 2 above, you can make your accumulated offering to the church.
Rest assured that the church will not have any short term cash flow difficulties over the next 3 or 4 months, so any delay in your offering by using the method 3 will not be a problem.
