Prevent debt before it happens! This is a great course to invite our friends to (and come along with them!).
The Christians Against Poverty Australia CAP Money course is a budgeting and finance education course, run in conjunction with St Jude’s Church in Carlton. The course is designed to enable people with the skills they need to effectively manage spending and prevent the build-up of debt.

Freely available to anyone, this course teaches a proven cash based spending model that is easy to manage and will help prevent the build up of unnecessary debt.

BRING YOUR LAPTOP! You’ll get an electronic budget manager which is awesome. We’ll show you how to use it on the day.

Christians Against Poverty also urges anyone struggling with overwhelming debt to call our free helpline 1300 227 000.


As Christians we believe we need to be in the world loving people through the name of Jesus and this is a #practical way of doing that and letting people know we care about them, not just about their spirituality but about what happens to them in life.

The DVD based course will aim to teach participants:

– How to build a budget including advice on how to increase your income and how to cut costs.
– The CAP Money system to simplify your money and make it understandable.
– To use cash instead of cards.

It’s a great course and is particularly helpful at this time of the year leading up to Christmas.

It’s a difficult time of the year for people, they want to be generous but often they don’t have the money to manage that and they can get themselves into debt.

It would be good time for them to think about how their finances are and how that works so that they don’t come out on the wrong end of the balance sheet after Christmas.

Come along and bring your friends. But don’t forget to RSVP as there are limited spots.
