Are you struggling with debt?


Debt has become a huge issue in the last few years. If you are struggling with debt then remember:
 
  • You will be one of a number in your street or neighborhood.
  • At Christ Church, we want to give what support we can.
  • There are a number of agencies to help or advise you so do not struggle alone if you are not sure of how to tackle your problem.

 

What can Moneywise Christ Church do to help me?


All Moneywise volunteers have beenon special training to provide meaningful help and support for you in coping with and finding a way of resolving debt issues.

Although they are not certificated advisors they can help provide you with valuable resources for budgeting and provide practical support in persisting with the long road to coming out of financial problems. They are also trained to refer people who need professional advice

We also are available to pray with those who ask us to pray for them.
