How to Donate

Why Give?

The true joy of generosity is a wonderful part of human life. By giving, we are modeling ourselves after our loving God, whose abundant, generous giving fills our lives. Your generosity enables the United Church to love, serve and minister in the world.

To support our Carlisle United Church ministry and mission financially, you may give by means of weekly envelopes, by using PAR (“Pre-authorized Remittance”, monthly bank withdrawal) or through online donation (by VISA, MasterCard, American Express or Discover).

Weekly Envelopes

Contact the Church office to request envelopes for your family ([email protected]).

PAR (“Pre-Authorized Remittance”)

These days many people find it convenient to look after financial obligations by automatic deductions from their bank account.

Our church offers the opportunity to give regularly by pre-authorized remittance. In this way we as contributors can offer consistent support to our church and avoid “catch up” periods. The congregation benefits by receiving a regular flow of contributions, reducing paperwork and bank overdrafts, especially during the summer months. Cards are available at the back of the church so that PAR contributors can “put something on the offering plate” as it is passed on Sunday.

If you are interested in giving in this way, please pick up a brochure at the back of the sanctuary or contact the Church office ([email protected] or 905-689-8630). Your generous contributions enable us to put our faith into action.

Online Donation (Square)

Carlisle United Church has a convenient online portal with Square ( so you can easily make donations on-line.

The Square app was created to make giving simple. It’s fast, secure and convenient.
