PAR, or Pre-Authorized Remittance, is a direct debit program that allows people to support their church through an automatic monthly withdrawal from their bank account once a month.

To sign up for PAR, just ask the secretary a form.  Please note that PAR can be changed at any time if your circumstances change, and also that there is no charge for this service.  Tax receipts are issued at year-end.

Envelopes for members
are provided for weekly cash or cheque givings and may be placed on the collection plate during regular church service.  There are separate envelopes for the designation of funds into separate accounts and is printed on the front.

For bookkeeping purposes, please use separate envelopes for separate categories – this would be much appreciated!  Tax receipts are issued at year-end.

Visitor envelopes are available in the Narthex and the Sanctuary.  Please fill in your name and address in order to receive a tax receipt at year-end.

In Memoriam donations

Recognition Gifts
may be given to acknowledge someone’s special occasion such as a birthday, anniversary, graduation, birth, marriage, etc.  They may be made through the Church Office.  Receipts are issued at year-end.

Donations to Parkview U.C.W. – 
The United Church Women have their own Bank Account.  Donations may be made by cash or by cheque payable to “Parkview United Church Women”  and placed in an envelope clearly marked “Parkview U.C.W.”.  Please use a separate envelope and do not combine with your regular church donation.  Receipts are issued at year-end.

Planned Giving
of gifts in the future for various ministries of the church can be made through legacies. You can designate your planned gift to any aspect of The United Church of Canada—the Mission and Service Fund, your local congregation, a local mission unit, a United Church camp, a theological college, The United Church of Canada Archives, or The United Church of Canada Foundation.


If you have questions about any of the giving choices, please ask one of your stewards or the church treasurers.
