Making a gift of our money to God is an important part of worship. We no longer pass an offering collection basket during our services, but an offering plate can be found at the entrances to the church. This is taken to the front during the service, and a prayer of dedication offered for all the gifts, however made.
In West we use a Freewill Offering system. All giving is recorded through the FWO numbering system to ensure confidentiality which allows people the freedom to give as the Lord leads them.
Use of your Freewill Offering envelope can be by cash or by cheque made payable to West Church, – please include a FWO envelope with your cheque if possible. This can be placed in the offering plate in the entrance to the church before or after services or can be left into the office postbox or the Church Office during working hours. You can post your Free Will Offering envelope or a cheque, made payable to West Church to West Presbyterian Church, 91 Crawfordsburn Road, Bangor, BT19 1BG.
Since the changes that came about during the pandemic, our preferred method for giving is by Standing Order/Bank Transfer. You can contribute regularly, temporarily or as a one off donation by Standing Order or Bank Transfer. Standing Order forms can be downloaded by clicking on the forms provided on this page.
If you wish to donate by cash and do not have a Freewill Offering envelope you can still Gift Aid your contribution by using the White Envelopes in the back of the sanctuary seats. If you complete the details on the front of the envelope it will allow the church to reclaim gift aid and increase your contribution by 25%.
