Credence or offertory tables are a type of side table that is used to hold items used during the celebration of the Eucharist. Tables vary in size and shape, though most have a flat back and a sizable top surface. Select styles may include built-in storage. Traditionally, the credence or offertory table is placed along the south wall of the church in the altar area. A young member of the church known as an altar server attends the table and helps transport items from the offertory table to the altar for use as needed. The top of the offertory is usually covered in fine linens.
