Tithes and offerings
Under normal circumstances, there is the opportunity to provide an offering during our Sunday morning service. For visitors, there is no expectation and it's perfectly fine to allow the offering bag to simply pass by you.
The matter of your giving is between you and God, and He always takes into account our circumstances. He knows when they are beyond our power to direct and control. The important thing is that we see giving as a privilege and not a burden. It should not be out of a sense of duty, but rather out of love for the Lord and a desire to see His kingdom advanced. (Billy Graham Evangelistic Association)
Giving online/electronically is becoming increasingly common. If you are looking to do so, you are able to provide a General Offering to:

If you would prefer to give your offering via cash, please let us know and we will arrange this with you.
Recently our leadership team has been prompted to consider how, as a Church, we can support our members and the wider community in very real and practical terms through the challenges, which illness, isolation, unemployment and other impacts will bring to us.
Some have expressed a desire to contribute financially and as a team we have sought to establish some helpful guidelines to support this desire.
If you attend our church regularly, you may be familiar with the Hope Chest, a fund that has been utilised at the discretion of the Pastor and Elders, to support people in practical ways. Over the past year these funds have been used to support people with groceries, bill payments, gift vouchers, and the provision of meals for the sick (to name a few). By extending this ministry we imagine that these and other purchases (for example, purchasing meals through Good Golly) could in our current environment be a gracious reflection of Christ’s presence in our community.
For this reason we are inviting contributions for our renewed 'Hope Chest', either directly into our church account (marked 'Hope Chest') or anonymously as a tax deductible gift using EFT or Credit Card, through the CCVT Careworks Account.
The details of the latter are available in a form which can be downloaded below - so that the process can be totally anonymous
We commend the opportunity to give in this way - not as a substitute for tithing but as an opportunity to invest in the work of the Kingdom in Red Cliffs.
“Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap
generously. Each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion,
for God loves a cheerful giver.”
- Corinthians 9:6-7
