Donations to Bayview United Church

Most of the expenses for operating the church continue even though we are not holding worship services in the church building.
There are three ways to contribute monetarily to the church:
1. Cheque
This is the preferred method. Please mail your cheque to the address:
The Treasurer
Bayview United Church
2609 Bayview Ave.

2. Pre-Authorized Remittance (PAR)
A second alternative is to sign up for PAR. Please contact Kaz Shikaze at office@bayviewunitedchurch.ca and your request will be forwarded from the church office to Kaz. Unfortunately, we are unable to accept e-transfers.
3. Canada Helps

The bulk of the charge is for credit card processing and a small amount is an administrative fee charged by Canada Helps. Your tax receipt will be sent to you electronically from Canada Helps.
