Pay It Forward

Here's how you can give back to the church financially:


St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church, Orillia, exists today through the gifts of time, talent and treasure of both past and present members of the church community. Your gifts support the daily life of the church and make possible the many programmes and services offered to the local community and beyond including national and international projects.

Your support is the outward sign of your thanksgiving to God for the gifts you have received. We ask that you prayerfully consider some of the many ways to support the ministries of St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church.

Pre-Authorized Remittance

Many people no longer carry cash and cheques and instead they preauthorize their bank to withdraw certain amounts to pay bills, etc. You can do the same with your church givings by calling the office and arranging for an amount to come off your account on a monthly basis.

To find out the details about this very steady way you can support the ministries of the church call our main office.


  • OPC now accepts INTERAC e-Transfer auto deposit, via online banking through your financial institution or Credit Union.
  • Recipient name is “Orillia Presbyterian Church”
  • Our bank account is registered for auto deposit, therefore a security question is not required.
  • If you have any questions, please call the church office, 705.325.5183 (EXT 1) or email: [email protected]

Living Trust Fund

Many individuals over the years have given lump sums to the church to be invested in order that the principal is secured but the interest continues to give year after year to support the church and its work. It is a gift that keeps on giving and we encourage you to consider St. Andrew’s as you prepare your wills or by giving annuities or gifts today.


Certain people prefer to give lasting gifts to be designated to specific purposes. We have, for example, a bursary that supports students studying for ministry. We welcome such gifts especially in consultation with the church treasurer.

Tribute Tree

“To everyone who conquers, I will give permission to eat from the tree of life that is in the paradise of God.” — Revelation 2:7b

In Loving Memory

Imagine the chance to drop by the Welcome Centre of St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church and see your loved one’s name on the tree. In the warmth and comfort of the couches at the Tribute Tree, you can sit and remember and rejoice that your loved one is part of God’s Tree of Life.

In Living Tribute

How delightful it is to say thank you or I love you by placing a leaf on the Tribute Tree at St. Andrew’s. For years to come, your name or that of someone you appreciate and love will be forever celebrated each time someone looks at this tree.

How to Obtain a Leaf

By contributing $300 to St. Andrew’s church per leaf, your loved one’s name(s) will be added to the tree. Each leaf can take up to 26 letters including spaces.

Make it a family or group effort

Join with others to make a tribute leaf possible.
