helping people get in control of their money

It’s often hard to face our own money situation; those who are struggling with debt and financial worries often find it impossible.

How can the church help people who are struggling with their money get more in control of it and see how they can make changes? How do we know where to start?

In this session, we outline why and how the church can help.

Three brilliant speakers share their wisdom expertise and tools for churches to offer basic money management and budgeting sessions, or be equipped to walk with someone on a one-to-one basis. We cover some of the really great resources and training offered to help churches do just that.

Those in churches can be the trusted friends who can walk alongside people and help them look at their money situation and take action to make changes. It is not as hard as you think- and it can be a simple but lifechanging thing to do- to help all of us, no matter what our situation “take control of our money, rather than it controlling us”.
