Important Information Concerning Member Ceremonies of Significance

Important Information Concerning Member Ceremonies of Significance

Church members usually look to the church for support at times of major life transition such as marriage, birth and death. During the past two years, however, it became evident that clarification was needed in two key areas: who can officiate at these events, and which principles govern the use of the building during member ceremonies of significance.

You will likely have heard that the Canada Revenue Agency does not allow charitable organizations to give any special benefits to members. This means that members are no longer able to rent the building at discounted rates. However, since ceremonies of significance are considered to be central to this organization’s charitable purpose, the church can offer the use of the building to members for ceremonies of significance at no charge. At the same time, the church still needs to pay staff to set up, host, and clean up after these events. To this end, the board recently approved a policy allowing for a modest cost recovery charge related to staffing expenses during member ceremonies of significance.
