Pre-Authorized Remittance, or PAR, allows you to support your church through an automatic monthly withdrawal from your bank account.

The United Church administers the program following the giver’s wishes—for example, you might give X amount for local church expenses and X amount for Mission & Service.

The PAR brochure at the bottom of this page contains an overview of the program and an authorization form.

If you are in a congregation

Besides being convenient, using PAR for your offering ensures regular monthly givings to help your church’s ministry even when you are away. You will be providing a dependable flow of contributions, which increases the church’s overall financial stability. Why not participate in PAR?

If you are not in a congregation

If you are not a member of any congregation you can still contribute to Mission & Service through PAR:

  1. Send us a letter stating the amount you wish to give each month and your instructions.
  2. Attach a sample cheque from your account marked “sample” or “void.”
  3. Mail both to the PAR Administrator.

If you want to make a change to your existing amount or contribution period, please mail, e-mail, or fax the information to the PAR Administrator.
