A local church is joining 1,138 across the UK offering free courses to help make money management a successful resolution for 2014.
St Peter’s Church in Morley will be running the CAP Money Course following training from the debt counselling charity Christians Against Poverty.
CAP Money coach, and member of the congregation, Jackie Gallop, said: “We are really pleased to be able to put on this popular course, which 10,000 people attended in the UK just last year.
“January is a great time to take a fresh look at your financial situation and make a plan for the year ahead. Lots of people are keen to manage their money, but often don’t have the basic skills, so this course is a really effective place to start.
“This year we have decided to run courses outside our own church buildings, as we know how intimidating they can appear to those who would not normally attend church, and Asda have kindly offered us the use of their training room for our January course.”
The popular course is run across the country through local churches, which have been trained by CAP. It is designed for anyone whether unemployed, receiving benefits, working, self-employed, retired, newly married or recently divorced.
Jackie said: “Even if you went a bit overboard at Christmas, it’s not too late to do something now about your financial situation. With the help of the CAP Money Course we have seen people back in the black and start saving - sometimes for the first time in their lives.”
The next course takes place at ASDA Stores Training Room, Howley Park Road, Morley, on Monday, January 20 at 7pm. To book your place, contact Jackie on 07894300258.
