A Crewkerne church is running a free course to help people get on top of their household finances. Members of North Street Baptist Church underwent specialist training from UK charity Christians Against Poverty, when they vowed “to help the local community to best handle the economic climate.” They are now offering a short course of three weekly sessions, aimed at putting the joy back into money by teaching people how to chart their household income and take control of their expenditure. The first free course begins at Wadham School on November 6th at 6.30 pm.
The CAP money course will be led by money coach Alan Reeves who 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 the tough times. If you know how to save and budget effectively, it can have a hugely positive impact on the whole family. 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.”
Crewkerne Baptist Church is one of more than 1,000 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.
