THINGS aren't what they were at the Church of England, what with an advertising campaign and the launch this week of a PEP by the Ecclesiastical Insurance Group. But it is Harry Tomczyk, EIG's marketing man, who provides conclusive proof of a more businesslike attitude. 'All our profits go back to the Church,' he said. 'Although we issue church policies, we also issue life policies which generate alot of profit. It's a Christian approach to business - we try to run the company that way.' And he added: 'We can't be totally rigid, people are living longer nowadays.' Fewer funerals, more money - sounds like an adman's dream.
