Tithing process

Why do we Tithe?

We Tithe mainly for three reasons:

·         We Tithe because the scriptures teach us to do so

·         The Church needs it to carry out Gods Mission and Ministry. Without the Tithes from Parishioners, St Monnicas will not be in a position to carry out its Ministries and as such would not exist

·         The money obtained through Tithes is used to carry out the Management and Maintenance of the Church

Who should Tithe?

At St Monnicas we believe that all individuals should Tithe in their own capacity from the age of 16 years.

How much should one Tithe?

Planning of our Tithe towards Gods Ministry is important and should not be done impulsively or reluctantly. 2 Corinthians 9:7 reads: Each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.

Each member is requested to contribute a minimum of 10% of our earnings on a regular basis as Deuteronomy 14:22 reminds us to set aside a tenth of all your fields produce each year. God is the giver of all things; and that what we give back to God is only a small portion of what He has given to us.

How do I Tithe?

Dedicated Giving Sunday at St Monnicas takes place in November. During Dedicated Giving Sunday, Parishioners pledge and commit their Financial support to the Church and to God in the form of a Tithe. Parishioners complete the Tithing form and submit it to the Parish office to allow the Administrator to issue Tithing envelopes which members use for contributions.


The Tithing process is quite simple:

STEP 1 Become a member of the St Monnicas Parish

STEP 2 Complete the Tithing Form

STEP 3 Collect Tithing Envelopes

STEP 4 Tithe Monthly / Quarterly / Annually

What payment methods are available?

·         Envelopes

Should you wish to use our envelope process to Tithe, simply place your Tithe in the Tithing envelope supplied to you with your membership number, complete the information required on the face of the envelope and place the envelope in the collection bag during the next service. 

·         Internet Banking / EFT

Should you wish to Tithe using EFT, simply use the word Tithe and your membership numberas a reference for the transaction and our Finance Ministry will allocate your Tithe to your membership account. If you do not know your membership number, please contact the Administrator to advise you of your number. 

Example Joe Barber has a membership number of 123 and wishes to pay R1,000 per month via EFT as his Tithe. Joe must create St Monnicas Church as a beneficiary on his internet banking with the reference Tithe 123 and submit the payment as a recurring monthly payment.
