Why we give.

Financial giving is a key value within our church. We encourage everyone who calls Burnside Elim his or her spiritual home to be part of the on-going work of God through the practice of giving. Through peoples’ generous giving we are able to keep stepping into everything that we feel God is calling us to do. The money that you give goes towards ministry programs, staff and building costs, as well as local and global missions projects.Current laws allow you to claim back 1/3 of your giving to all registered charities of which we are one. We issue receipts at the end of the financial year for this purpose.If you have any questions concerning financial giving, including the allocation of a personal tithing number, please call the office or email
