Ways of giving to St Ronan's
There are two ways of giving which enable you to keep a track of your giving and, if relevant, provide you with the information necessary for a tax rebate.
Automatic payment is a simple way of making a regular offering to the church. This just requires you to set up an automatic payment from your bank account to St Ronan's.
Bank of New Zealand - Petone Branch: ST RONAN'S PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH
Account number: 02 0544 0142859 00
(This is all the information you need to set this up.)
The Envelope System is still a common way of giving at St Ronan's. Helen Withy, the envelope secretary, is able to provide you with a regular supply of envelopes. These envelopes are placed in the offering plate during the Sunday collection.
Total annual giving will be provided for tax purposes to those with automatic payments set up and those using the envelope system.
St Ronan's is a registered charity and, as such, is required to submit a return to the Charities Services each year.
