Presbyterians Sharing


Presbyterians Sharing, formerly called the “General Assembly Budget,” is the name of the fund that supports the national programs and ministries of the Presbyterian Church in Canada and it is supported by gifts from congregations.  (Presbyterians Sharing does not fund development work and emergency relief; those important functions of the church are funded through gifts to Presbyterian World Service and Development.)

Presbyterians Sharing is a unified fund, meaning that all gifts are pooled and then distributed to a wide variety of ministries in Canada and overseas. Included is the work of the Life and Mission Agency and its departments - International Ministries, Canada Ministries, Justice Ministries, Ministry and Church Vocations, Education for Discipleship and Communications.  It also includes the work of the General Assembly, Financial Support Services and the theological colleges in Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver.

The Outreach and Missions Ministry at St. Andrew’s is involved in helping to stimulate members of the congregation to donate to this important fund and to educate them about what work these funds support.
