I am part of the Immanuel Outreach team. Over the past few years we've had two incidents of people dying that had no connection to our church. However, a member of our church served as a bridge during this tragic time which resulted in our church being offered, and used, for the funeral.
The church policy (based on helping us comply with Revenue Canada) is such that these people were told they must be charged to use the facility. In both cases other stepped forward to pay the bill.
We would like to make our church available for these needs as a witness and free of charge.
Canadian churches, any advice on how to do this?
We look forward to hearing from you!
