HOW YOU CAN HELP

Waldensians have put into practice that which Cavour considered to be the most suitable relationship between religion and politics: a free Church in a free State. It follows that, as they refuse any interference of the State in their church life, so they refuse any privileges that are not available to other organizations as well. They have always been very critical, therefore, of relationships between Church and State being based on special concordats, not only on the basis of the secularity of the State but also on that of the freedom of the Church itself.
In 1993 the Waldensian and Methodist churches decided to have recourse to the law which permits them to receive euro 8 out of euro 1000 (8 per mille) of IRPEF (yearly income tax).

In compliance with article n.8 of the Constitution, which contemplates agreements between the State and non-Roman Catholic faith-groups, in 1984 they signed an agreement which regulates their rights as Christian churches. On the basis of these principles, the Waldensian and Methodist churches, as other Protestant communities, provide personally for the maintenance of their ministers and deacons, for the buildings used for worship and other activities, for some social initiatives. The offerings of the believers must, therefore, cover all budget expenses.
