We believe that God is interested in all aspects of our lives, including how we handle our money. Financial worries can place a huge strain on people’s lives and families, so we run the CAP Money course to help with this.
What is CAP Money?
CAP Money is a money management course, devised by the award winning debt-counselling charity Christians Against Poverty, which teaches people budgeting skills. It is a simple, cash-based system that really works. This course will help anyone to get more in control of their finances, so they can save, give and prevent debt.
What CAP Money teaches
CAP Money is a three-session course that features DVD presentations by John Kirkby, CAP’s Founder and International Director, and Matt Barlow, CAP’s UK Chief Executive. In the three sessions you will learn:
- How to build and live on a budget. This is the cornerstone of managing your money well. The session also looks at how to increase your income and how to reduce your costs
- The CAP Money system. This system will help to simplify your money and make it understandable. It operates using three accounts for your money: a regular payments account, a cash account and a savings account.
- How to live from week to week using cash. Living on cash and getting away from cards means you know exactly where you are and helps you to spend less money. It’s statistically proven that you spend 33% less money when paying by cash rather than cards.
By applying these three principles, you will learn how to manage your money, and live your life! After watching the DVDs, trained CAP Money Coaches will be available to help you build your budget and answer any questions you may have. A unique benefit of CAP Money is that, if you discover that you can’t balance your budget and pay off any debts, you will be able to access CAP Money Plus. This is an Internet-based debt counselling service from Christians Against Poverty.
What to Expect
CAP Money is run in thousands of locations throughout the UK by churches that partner with Christians Against Poverty. The course will run over three consecutive weeks, in the evenings. Our trained CAP Money Coaches will help you understand and apply the course material, and support you as you manage your own finances.
