Hello, my name is Tahnee – I am 25 years old and I am living in Fitzroy North. I have just finished studying music at Monash and am on the hunt for a space to call a studio! I need room for a desk and a small amount of music equipment. I would need to make some noise but not much…I like folk music and singing! I am clean and tidy and would be happy to rent the space

If you have a Direct Offering arrangement with U Ethical (formerly UCA Funds), please read this important notice.
If you have set up a regular direct giving arrangement directly from your bank account (typically using Online Banking), you don’t need to do anything.
Before online banking existed, many of us set up “Direct Debit” arrangements with UCA Funds (now called U Ethical). U Ethical takes the money from our individual bank accounts as per our instructions, and once a month, transfers all such offerings to BUC’s account.
On 31 July, this service will end. It’s an important cost saving for U Ethical, which will be passed on to the Synod via increased grants. If you don’t do anything, BUC will stop receiving your offerings after July.
What you need to do:
You need to set up a new direct giving arrangement, or “recurring payment”, directly from your bank account to BUC’s. Some banks will let you do this yourself using online banking (from your computer or smartphone app). Otherwise, ask your branch staff for help to set it up. The account details you need for BUC are:
BUC account number: 8687863
