As Christians, we believe we are the recipients of incredible, undeserved generosity from God. He hasn't treated us as our sins deserve - but has poured out his mercy and kindness to us - and continues to do so every day!
One of the ways we respond to God's generosity is to give our money cheerfully and sacrificially to honour God, and make Him known.
100% of our budget comes from the giving of members of our church - that's you! Please prayerfully consider how you can partner with us in God's work at Church by the Bridge. If you have any questions about giving, please contact the Wardens, or read 'Common questions about giving'.
Church by the Bridge encourages all of our members to submit a financial pledge each year. This information is only ever seen by 2 people - our Executive Pastor and our Bookkeeper - who aggregate the data to allow our staff and Parish Council to budget more accurately for the year ahead.

How can I give?
The Bible encourages us to give in a planned, regular and generous manner (1 Cor 16:14 and 2 Cor 8-9). Having decided what to give, an automated giving arrangement will help to keep us regular in giving to the gospel work at Church by the Bridge. We therefore recommend the following:
1. Internet Banking (our preferred method)
You can set up a regular funds transfer direct to Church by the Bridge using internet banking. Our bank account details are:
BSB: 032 099
Account number: 637189
Account name: Church by the Bridge
2. Credit card / direct debit
You can also set up a recurring offertory payment from your credit card or bank account. Alternatively, you can make a one-off credit card payment via the 'Secure Online Giving' form below. Giving this way has the same benefits as internet banking, however the downside is that the church does incur some bank fees on these transactions.

3. Cash / cheque
Of course you can still give in cash or via cheque (payable to 'Church by the Bridge') in the offertory bags each week. Offertory envelopes can also be supplied to you to help you give regularly - simply request a box from the church office.
