Finance & Giving

The Need
Christians at Work relies on the giving of our members, workplace groups, local churches and other interested individuals. At present it takes around £65,000 per year to operate Christians at Work. The main cost items are:
Costs associated with the running of the Christians at Work office
  • Salaries of the full-time Christians at Work staff
  • Costs of producing and mailing our regular publications and newsletters
  • Staff and Council expenses, such as travel
  • Costs of producing resources for workplace ministry and witness
The Challenge
If the work of Christians at Work it is to develop and progress so that we can more effectively encourage, support and equip workplace ministry and witness we need to continue to have a secure financial base.

There is great potential for an organisation like Christians at Work. We can make a significant difference in helping Christians be salt and light where God has placed them, but very often we find ourselves limited by financial constraints.

Ways of Giving
1. Direct Donation
You can simply make a direct donation to Christians at Work by sending a cheque to:
Christians at Work, c/o Norman Wilcox, 13A Florence Road, South Croydon, Surrey,
CR2 0PQ, using our Gift Aid Declaration form or by using our online donations page. All donations, however small, are welcome.

2. Regular Giving
You can give by standing order. Regular giving will help us to more effectively predict our income and thus help us to budget more effectively.

3. is powered by Stewardship, a Christian charity where you can donate to Christians at Work and they can claim back any Gift Aid on your giving. See

Tax Efficient Giving
1. Gift Aid
Under this scheme, Christians at Work can recover tax on any gift as long as you are a tax payer - this is at no extra cost to you! Of course you are free to cancel this at any time and you must inform us if your circumstances change and you no longer pay tax. Note by completing the declaration you are NOT committing yourself to any time period or future donations (like a covenant used to be). Obviously, if the declaration is submitted with a standing order mandate then that will be in force until cancelled.
By completing the declaration as worded you do not need to keep filling in a declaration for each gift (as the previous gift aid scheme).
If you have an existing covenant made on or before 5th April 2000, this continues to operate as a tax-effective means of giving, without further documentation. We will write to you when the covenant expires. You may still like to complete a Gift Aid Declaration now to cover any other payments, for example special appeals, that are made over the amount covered by the terms of the covenant.

2. Legacies
Legacies to charities are not subject to tax and therefore money left in wills to Christians at Work will effectively increase the Inheritance Tax threshold.

3. Give as You Earn
If you are employed or retired but receiving a company pension, you can make gifts to Christians at Work under the Give as You Earn (GYE) Scheme. Inquiries should be made to your employer, or pension administrator, or to Give as You Earn, CAF King's Hill, West Malling, Kent ME19 4TA. Tel: (01732) 520000.
