Altar

Our altar is very small which makes it difficult to serve, especially when we have visiting clergy. In order to make more space we have had plans drawn up for an altar refurbishment.

matching gift program

As a registered non-profit organization Christ the Saviour Church is therefore eligible for matching gift programs that are available through many companies. Many companies will match employee contributions to a charity or cause. Matching plans are specific to each company, but the common principle is simple:

The company will contribute some amount (maybe the same, maybe a percentage) if the employee makes a contribution. To find out if your employer has a matching plan, ask your HR department.

You can make a preliminary search by going to this address to find a full list of participating companies:

https://www.1800runaway.org/wp-content/uploads/2016/08/corporate-match-directory.pdf

To quicken your search:  open the list, then do ctrl F and then write the name of your employer in the box and it will take you straight there, if it is there.

Don’t forget to tell your relatives and friends as well!
