Christians Against Poverty Teach Valuable Budgeting Skills

Christians Against Poverty (CAP) are once again teaching their money-managing course which emphasizes the importance of old-fashioned budgeting.  More than 7,000 people attended last year’s course, and with rising VAT (tax) rates, gas prices and a job market that is still pretty bleak, the attendance numbers for this years course are set to increase.

Nearly 800 churches across the UK are set to participate in this course, offering classes beginning this month.  In this “age of austerity,” CAP feels it important to acknowledge our own financial realities.  Founder John Kirby urges, “So many of us are guessing at our finances. We’re hoping for the best while continuing to spend, really without knowing what we have available […] The Bible says the truth will set you free and certainly when you know what your situation is – even if it’s a mess – you can start to tackle the issue.”
