Christian rebuild is a small charity. We have no paid employees. All the trustees are volunteers and pay their own expenses if they travel overseas. Trustees meetings are held by telephone conference in order to minimise expenses and we always try to keep costs low so that the maximum sum can be given.
Christian Rebuild helps church-run projects and Christian individuals in 'second-world' countries. Allthough inspired by the need to continue the good work of the Congregational Federation's one off appeals for Christian Projects in Eastern Europe. Independent trustees run Christian Rebuild from more than one Congregational tradition. It helps Churches of all denominations, but gives preferance to those of Congregational style. Christian Rebuild started work by aiding the Evangelical (Congregational) Church in Saranda, Albania and a student member of the Armenian Evangelical church in Lebanon.
