IMPORTANT: BILL PAYMENT CAN ONLY BE ACCEPTED WITH AN OFFERING NUMBER IN THE 6 ALPHANUMERIC FORMAT. PLEASE FILL IN THE CONTACT FORM WITH THE LINK BELOW OR CONTACT [email protected] TO REQUEST A VALID OFFERING NUMBER IF REQUIRED.
Step 3 – Payment Date
Before fully adapting to this new option, we will only accept offerings by Bill Payments on the 1st to 7th day of each month (e.g. Aug 1 to Aug 7). Please select a payment date within this date range for your offering payment.
AS THE CHRUCH WILL NOT RECEIVE ANY NOTIFICATION OF YOUR ONLINE BILL PAYMENT AND PAYMENTS ARE PROCESSED AUTOMATICALLY, IT IS ESPECIALLY IMPORTANT FOR YOU TO CHECK AND CONFIRM THE ONLINE PAYMENT IS SET UP PROPERLY WITH THE CORRECT “PAYEE”.
Although the offering amount will be debited from your bank account immediately upon confirmation, it can take up to 4 business days for the offering to be credited to the church’s account. Your offering will only be considered received by the church upon receipt of the credit.
Upon receipt of your first offerings made via “Bill Payment”; we shall send you a password to access the monthly offering summary for you to check against your own record. No individual confirmation will be provided.
Offerings in all formats (i.e. cash, e-transfer, cheque, online bill payments) will be combined and reported under the same NTCBC assigned offering number for tax reporting.
Online offerings can be made by Interac e-Transfer through your bank account. The process is simple and standard. Please click the link below to register with us and we will email you additional instructions.
