Here at Bellville, we value the ministry of returning a faithful tithe and offering to the Lord.

In the Seventh-day Adventist Church, tithe money does not stay within the local congregation but is redistributed across the global network of Churches for the furthering of the Gospel mission. Our church also collects local offerings and uses them to support our congregation’s ministries directly through our Church budget.

Thank you for your support of the global mission of the Seventh-day Adventist Church as you tithe, as well as your support of our local church ministry budget through your offerings.

Please make use of the following reference formats. Note the difference between Tithe and Offering. 

When you give an Offering via electronic banking, please use your surname and initials (for eg. Adams, W) as a reference.

When returning Tithe via electronic banking, please use your surname,initial,Tithe,BVL (for eg. Adams,W,Tithe,BVL) as a reference. It is important that you reference the congregation, Bellville, abbreviated as 'BVL'.

Then email your proof of deposit with a clear breakdown of your tithe and offering, to the Church Treasurer at

Note the different Banking Details (i.e. Tithe is paid into the Absa account and Offering is paid in the Standard Bank account):
