In Israel the people brought the 'first fruits' of their fields to God in worship and gratitude (Deut. 26:1-11). Electronic giving through the bank, where appropriate to the church context, offers a modern application of this ancient principle. The benefits to both the giver and to the church are compelling while the absence of something to put on the offering plate is addressed by customisable weekly giving cards. Note also that giving by Direct Debit offers some advantages over Standing Orders but is currently limited although common in the Church in Wales. However, there are hopes for a new, national Parish Giving Scheme driven by Direct Debit.
