Our Products and Services

We offer a range of tailored products and services that can help your ministry grow into the future.

Savings and Transactional Accounts

We provide a range of savings and transactional accounts that allow you to manage transactions with ease. We provide a competitive rate of return on your funds and do not charge account keeping fees.
You can manage transactions through:

  • Direct Debits & Periodical payments;
  • Cheque issuance facilities; and
  • Over the counter deposits at the CBA.

Corporate Credit Cards

To assist you with managing expenses, corporate credit cards are available through our partnership with the CBA. Having a corporate credit card enables you to make regular payments in store, online and over the phone and reduces the need for more manual payment methods such as petty cash and issuing of cheques.
