We are very grateful for all who support the mission and vision of our congregation. Now more than ever, we long for Trinity Beamsville to be a voice among and for God’s beloved people.
If you are in a place to continue offering financial support, thank you for your generosity! Below are some ways to contribute to our work.
As you read and make decisions about your best options, please know our greatest request is for your ongoing prayers and well-being. We know that many households are dealing with financial uncertainty and struggle. We offer heartfelt prayers for stability, peace, and strength for all God’s people, that all will have the critical resources needed to thrive.
Ways to donate to Trinity United Church, Beamsville:
Pre-Authorized Remittance (PAR):
This is a regular monthly amount that comes out of your bank account and is deposited into Trinity’s bank account.
In order to set PAR up you will need to fill out a form and then send the completed form and a copy of a void cheque to the church.
You can send it to our church office using either email firstname.lastname@example.org or regular mail (Trinity United Church, PO Box 609, Beamsville ON L0R 1B0).
To access our PAR Form, please click here…You can fill in the form and then print it for your signature or you can print it and fill it in by hand.
If you want to do a one-time donation or a series of donations, the church will accept cheques. We will gladly accept post-dated cheques if you want to continue giving according to your regular pattern. They can be mailed to Trinity United Church, PO Box 609, Beamsville ON L0R 1B0
If you want to do a one-time donation or your regular weekly giving and you aren’t into writing cheques you can send an e transfer to email@example.com.
It is set up so that no security question is required.
We do need to know where you would like your donation to be allocated e.g. General Operating Fund, Mission & Service, Raise the Roof.
When doing an e-Transfer there is a message line on the transfer form that you can use to let our Administrator know where to allocate your donation. There is a limit on the message line of 400 characters but something short will do, e.g. General 25 – M&S 10.
Canada Helps is an organization that handles donations for a number of charities. The advantage of using them is that you could charge your donation to a credit card.
The disadvantage to the church is that Canada Helps takes 4% of the donation for the credit card fee and the cost of issuing the charitable receipt. If you would like to use Canada Helps their website is CanadaHelps.org.
Trinity United Church is listed with them as ‘Beamsville Pastoral Charge’
Thank you for all that you are and do, in helping us to live out our ministry, in Beamsville and far beyond!
Update from the Finance Committee
We know that many of you are concerned about the impacts of the pandemic on our congregational finances. We understand and share your concern, but can say that, all things considered, we are doing okay. Things are not ideal, and we wonder about the long term impacts of this extended time apart, but we are also grateful for your continued generosity. Thank you, for each and every gift you share!
For the first nine months of this year, we had an operating surplus (inflows versus outflows) of $4,608. We had budgeted to be down $30,112 and in comparison, during the first nine months of 2019 we were down $4,449.
The difference between this year (ahead $4,608) and last year (behind $4,449) can be explained as follows:
