St Peter’s Church to help people become savvy with their cash
To help people in Ruddington avoid the post-Covid economic chill, St Peter’s church is to run free sessions to help local people get on top of their household finances.
Members of St Peter’s wanted to help their local community to best handle the changing economic climate and have undergone specialised training from UK charity Christians Against Poverty (CAP).
They’re 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 Tim Pickup, who will be leading the sessions called the CAP Money course, said: “With most households feeling a 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.”
St Peter’s is becoming 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 people at all stages of life from students to new families and right through to the newly retired. The simple techniques for money management have helped large numbers of people keep control of their finances and overcome the financial bumps in life. The course is not about recommending products or services but outlines simple ways people can get control of their finances.
Andrew Buchanan, Vicar of St Peter’s, added: “The church is about good news, and, in this case, the good news is that people can be helped, quietly and confidentially, to take control of their money rather than relying on guess work so they can plan for the future and weather the storm.”
The course, which is three sessions, takes place in the Hermitage, Wilford Road, Ruddington starting on Saturday 14th August.
