North Coast Church Loan Offset Briefing
We’re on mission to reach Perth and beyond for Jesus and see lives changed by Him for all eternity
In December 2019, NCC held its first Sunday gathering at 154 Balcatta Rd. This property was purchased for $5,140,000, utilising funds from four main sources:
- Funds from the sale of NCC’s property in Kingsley ($940,000 of $1,200,000).
- One-off contributions from members.
- Loan from Churchlands Christian Fellowship ($550,000, interest free).
- Two loans from Baptist Financial Services (BFS) totalling $3,650,000.
The loan from Churchlands of $550,000 was paid in full in May 2019 and the current loan from BFS stands at $3,450,000.
Following interest rate rises in 2022, NCC’s repayments on the BFS loan increased from $17,000 per month to $21,000 per month, and are expected to continue to increase to $26,000 per month with future interest rate rises and part of the loan moving to principal and interest in 2023. This loan is being repaid by the ongoing generous giving of NCC members. However, one mechanism for reducing the interest repayments for this loan is via our loan offset account.
Loan Offset Process
How does the Loan Offset work at NCC? Those wishing to partner with NCC can provide an interest free loan to NCC, which is placed in a secure loan offset account to reduce the interest on loan repayments.
NCC currently have $140,000 of funds loaned that provide around $600 per month interest relief.
