Seventh-Day Adventist Church in PNG launches online payment for tithes

 THE Seventh-day Adventist (SDA) is the first church in Papua New Guinea to venture into using online platforms with the launch of “eGiving” (electronic giving) in partnership with the Bank South Pacific (BSP) to make eGiving accessible to its members.

BSP said, in a statement, that taking into account the Covid-19 pandemic measures, it endeavoured to work with churches to provide an alternate payment method for their members to

continue contributions to the church.

The Covid-19 reduced participation numbers in church gatherings and, as a result, church members were turning to live streams and online services.

Most members, however, still feel the need to visit the church to give their weekly tithes.

BSP general manager, digital, Nuni Kuku said the availability of eGiving allowed church members to electronically pay their tithes directly to the church account from the comfort and safety of their homes, via the church websites.

“The Adventist church in PNG is the first denomination to come on board with this initiative,” Kuku said.

“The church has been unifying people through the Word of God in PNG for more than 100 years and are now embracing technology as an alternate mode of connecting with the congregations nationwide.”
