Apart from the state-paid salaries of the Chaplains, all expenses of running our church here in Luxembourg are supported entirely by the generosity of the congregation. Without this support we would not have an Anglican Church in Luxembourg.
Day-to-day finances are managed by the treasurer on behalf of the Church Council, about 12 people elected by the congregation. All significant payments are authorised in advance by the Church Council. Annual Accounts are prepared and audited.
Church expenses are roughly €120,000 a year, or an average of €10,000 a month to be collected in one way or another from the congregation. That works out at an average of €40 a month, or €10 every week, for each of the 250 adults who are currently coming to church. Some people can afford more, which compensates for those who can afford less.
There are four main ways to give:
- One-off donation (anonymous or not)
- Monthly donation by bank standing order (only the treasurer is informed)
- Weekly envelopes (fill at home, put in collection)
- Offertory (cash collections) during services
The choice of method and amount is entirely yours, although, particularly if you cannot be in church very often, a bank standing order is the easiest way to pay your share.
Contributions to the Flower Fund will be gratefully received by Lucyna Muscat. There is a box at the back of the Church for your donations.
