Your generosity makes a difference. We have the privilege of partnering with God's work in the world by using our gifts and resources through the local church, the bridge. How might you Live to Give and participate in God’s plan for the world?

Giving Options include pre-authorized debit, online, service envelopes, stocks and bonds

We exist to connect with God, each other and our world and we would love for you to join us in our mission. Together, we can make a bigger impact than on our own. When you give to the bridge, your giving goes directly to support our mission (locally and globally), our ministries, and our mortgage. Together we are the body of Christ. Let’s Live to Give.

  Giving Options: Online    


Donate Now Through CanadaHelps.orgOnline giving allows you to give a one-time donation (Interac, Visa, MasterCard, or PayPal) or set recurring tithing (Credit Card only). This option helps you control when and how you give, even when you’re not able to be at one of our weekend services. We have appointed CanadaHelps, a trusted and secure not-for-profit organization, to process online gifts on our behalf.

Click on the "Donate Now" button to access online giving and you will be re-directed to the website.
Give online consistently? Visit as a quick link.

Note: CanadaHelps deducts a 3.9% processing fee from each donation, which is comparable to fees which would be payable by the bridge to set up similar services for processing online donations. If you would like to cover this processing fee, simply divide your donation amount by 0.961. Example: 100 ÷ 0.961 = $104.06. CanadaHelps deducts a $4.06 processing fee and the bridge receives a $100 donation.

Please note that all donations processed through CanadaHelps will receive a tax receipt directly from CanadaHelps, not the bridge.

  Giving Options: Service Envelopes    

Service Envelopes

During any of our weekend services, use an offering envelope from the chair pockets in the auditorium, place your cash and/or cheque inside, and put it in the offering plate as it passes. Be sure to clearly write your full name and mailing address on the envelope, so that a tax receipt can be mailed to you. You may visit our Info Centre to request your own box of date-stamped offering envelopes with a personalized giving number.

  Giving Options: Stocks & Bonds    

Stocks & Bonds

Giving appreciated stock may have significant tax advantages for you. We'd love to discuss your options with you. If you have stocks, bonds, property or any other assets that you would like to donate to the bridge, please email This email address is being protected from spambots.
