Anglican Church of Canada
Worship ministry by paying the salaries of the clergy and
organist who are visibly involved, and the salaries of the
administrative assistant who makes the bulleting and the
custodian who keeps our church clean and beautiful.
Besides these salaried persons, services also rely on the
participation of volunteer choir members, readers, servers,
chalice bearers, intercessors, lay readers, sides people,
greeters, Altar Guild members who prepare the altar, and on the
reverent participation of each congregant. Many staff and
volunteer hours go into planning for worship services.
Equally important, the church building which shelters and
inspires our worship also relies on those highly-skilled,
hard-working individuals who keep it maintained and on the
donations that pay for bread and wine, heating and air
conditioning, roof repairs and carpeting. These donations
allow us to worship God in all times and seasons of our lives.
For many years, the diocese of Nigara has offered this form of making donations to its parishes. It is as simple as completing a single-page form, providing a blank cheque, and allowing four to six weeks for processing before the withdrawals begin. Fewer than Twenty contributors at Christ Church use this system, which was originally created to increase efficiency and ease of contribution. Credit cards may also be used by going to the Diocesan website (www.niagaraanglican.ca), clicking on "Support Our Mission" which will allow you to contribute to Christ Church Niagara Falls. This is a secure link within the website, so no one sees your credit card information. Your Corportations seeks your help in this regard, and is asking for you prayerful consideration of this means of donation before the end of October. The envelope secretary and/or treasurer will be happy to answer your questions.
Gift PlanningGift Planning means finding a way to make an important gift to a cause you believe in while still getting the best tax benefits possible and achieving personal financial goals.
A planned gift to The Anglican Church of Canada can be made outright to the Church for its immediate use, or deferred – arranged now for completion later. Some planned gifts are designed both to support the work of God through the Church and to provide a life income for the donor. Each type of planned gift offers benefits to the donor, and supports the mission of the Church, whether it be a parish, diocese, General Synod, or another Anglican Church of Canada entity or ministry.
