Make a Donation

Generosity is one of the best responses we can make to God's goodness.

When you make a gift, either big or small, you are joining in the work that God is doing through the ministries and programs of Church of the Apostles. Your donation supports joyful worship, biblical teaching and learning, compassionate ministry in our city, striving for ecological and social justice, and the building of a community- in person and online- that seeks to learn and follow in Jesus' way of love. Each year our budget is approved by our corporation and passed at our annual vestry meeting. 

Thank you. 

Were you invited by a friend or family member to celebrate an occasion with them by making a gift? Please include their name and celebration with us, so we can thank you both! (on the memo line of your cheque, or in the "send a message" field of your online gift or e-transfer)

Gift in Your Will

Wills aren’t just a legal way to distribute your personal assets, they can be a powerful tool for change in the world. Adding a charitable gift to your Will is easier than you think. When it comes to leaving a gift in a Will many believe they have to be wealthy or they believe a gift in a will to a charity, such as your church, will mean less for loved ones. But by giving even a small portion of your estate to charity, such as your church, you can make a significant impact on what you care about, and still support those you love. In short, you can do both. Click here to dispel the myths of giving through your Will and learn more about giving to charity through your Will.
