A church is set to run free sessions to help people in Bootle get on top of their household finances.
Members of Northfield Community Church in Bootle wanted to help their local community to best handle the economic climate so underwent specialised training from UK charity Christians Against Poverty.
Now they are offering the short course aimed to putting the joy back into money by teaching people how to chart their household income and take control of their expenditure.
Money Coach Allan Henderson who will be leading the sessions called the CAP Money course, said: “With households feeling the squeeze on their disposable income, we’ve all got to get a bit more savvy about our money to get through these tough times. If you know how to save and budget effectively, it can have a hugely positive impact on the whole family.”
Northfield Community Church is one of more than 1,200 churches of different Christian traditions across the UK who are regularly offering the course, as they work together to positively impact the communities around them.
The CAP Money course has been found to be useful for newly retired people, soon-to-be students, mums dealing with mounting bills, families saving for a wedding and everyone in between.
He added: “We hope that we can help people, quietly and confidentially, take control rather than relying on guess work so they can plan for the future and weather the storm.”
The first course takes place in Goddard Hall, Stanley Road, Bootle starting at 2.00pm on October 15th

About CAP Money – the debt prevention courseThe CAP Money course is the pro-active educational arm of the charity. It is sometimes run by the centres that do debt counselling but mostly the courses are run by churches where congregations want to do something to empower people to fight poverty before it hits.
The CAP Money course isn’t for people with debts (though they can be catered for). It’s for everyone – students to the newly retired, single people and for families because we’ve seen that learning how to set a budget and stick to it helps to debt-proof people in the long term. There are more than 1,200 churches in the UK delivering CAP Money in their locality.www.capmoney.org About Christians Against PovertyChristians Against Poverty is a home-grown debt counselling charity which is determined to reduce poverty in the UK caused by debt.
