Pre-authorized giving

Changes to Pre-authorized Giving (PAR) (monthly automatic chequing account withdrawal)

We prefer to receive offerings from our members/participants through PAR (Pre-Authorized Giving) either using the Bridge App directly or filling in a form and having our PAR Administrator process your giving through the online portal of the Bridge APP:

Using the Bridge APP:

  • To download the Bridge App. Visit either the Apple App Store or Google Play Store, and search for “The Bridge App.” You can recognize the correct app by its logo and the name of the developer, Extreme Technology.
  • Once you launch The Bridge App, you will be prompted to create a user account (your email address) as well as a unique personal password. You will be asked to select your home church. Enter ‘’Water Street Church” in the white locator field and click on MAKE MY HOME CHURCH message on the HOME screen. You will be asked if you are already a member and if you would like to request membership access. For the purpose of giving, you will say yes. We are not maintaining our directory on the Bridge App. Our existing church database with Realm will continue to maintain your membership information and will be used to issue end-of-year charitable receipts.
  • Go to the GIVE Menu and “Make a Donation.” Select a Fund – Unified Budget, Building Fund and Missionary Support are enabled for recurring donations. Special donations will be enabled when the Church has a special offering. You can give weekly, bi-weekly, monthly or annually. The request will be sent to our church for approval.
  • Choose Payment Method: Either Credit Card or Bank Account. Credit Card attracts a 3% charge for the church. Bank Account has no charge. You will get confirmation of your donations and a record of your past donations can be seen on the App.

Having the PAR administrator process your giving:

Request a PAR Form from Fill in the PAR authorization form and attach a sample cheque (or photocopy) from your account marked “Void” or give the banking information and return to the email address noted on the form. You may also mail or hand it in to the office addressed to the PAR Administrator. You can choose the same funds and payment methods as noted above.

  • If you have changed your personal information (address, etc.), just connect with the church office.
