Giving Regularly through PAR (Pre-Authorized Remittance)

If you wish to donate regularly, our preferred method is through PAR – Pre-Authorized Remittance. With PAR your donation comes to St. Andrew's monthly from your bank account. Even if you miss attending church from time to time, you won’t let us down!

Instead of envelopes, consider PAR ~ it’s the same amount of money, but makes it so much easier for the church to handle. Application forms are available at the back of the church sanctuary and downloadable below...
