Connect Cards

Connect Cards, as their name indicates, are a tool for you to connect with Unite Church. We take liberty in the assumption, therefore, that you would then be expecting communication and response to your filled in connect card.

When you fill in a connect card (either a physical card or online at www.unitechurch.org.nz/connect-card), it goes to the office to input the data. It will then get passed onto relevant ministry leadership.

If you have ticked that you request anonymity with your praise story/prayer request/feedback, we will respect this.

“Leadership” Definition

Unite Church is governed by a Board.

The Senior Leaders work with various ministry and management leaders including their Executive team, Kingdom Team leaders, Ministry leaders, and Life Group Leaders.

Your contact details will be added into our database and are accessible to the above mentioned leadership to be used only for the purpose(s) specified on the connect cards and that mentioned in the above “General” text in this policy.

If you fill in a connect card with a praise story/prayer request/feedback - it will not be shared beyond the office (to input the details) and the Board and Executive team, unless permission has been granted.

Data Storage

Your data that we hold is stored online in a cloud based software. We use Tithe.ly (Elvanto) to do this. To learn more about their privacy policy and protection of data, visit https://get.tithe.ly/privacy-policy.
