It is a privilege to give back to God what he has graciously given. And VAPC commits to steward your generosity well. Together, let us honour God and bless people.

Our giving options include:

  • General giving
  • Dedicated Giving

Undesignated donations go toward our general fund, which is unrestricted–accounting for program delivery, mission support and church operations of our facility and staff. 

Tax reciepts for charitable giving will be issued at the end of the year.

If you have any questions or need further information, please contact our treasurer.


Visitors are welcome and if you would lke to support the work of the church, you can donate by cash or cheque. If you wish to get a receipt for your donation and give cash, please put the cash in in an envelope and provide your mailing address (envelopes are in the pew racks). If you give my cheque with your address, we will mail you an income tax receipt for your donation.  


Why Give by Pre-Authorized Remittance (PAR)?

We encourage our members to use the PAR method (see below) for their regular giving as it reduces the work of our volunteer counting teams, bank fees, and handling and processing fees. PAR giving also improves our record-keeping efficiency and maintains the privacy of your donations.
