Money coaching blocks
Serve your community with money coaching, and help them experience the freedom that comes from feeling in control of their finances. 

What is money coaching?

Through money coaching, you can help your community build the knowledge, skills and confidence to improve their financial wellbeing.

CAP’s money coaching toolkit features 100 minutes of expert teaching across 23 bitesize videos, alongside top quality print resources and brilliant online budgeting tools.

Money coaching typically takes place over 3 or 4 group sessions facilitated by a trained money coach within your church community. It’s designed to run alongside any other ministries or services you offer in your church such as small groups or food banks. It can also be offered one to one.

It’s a simple, low cost way to serve your community and help them experience the freedom that comes from feeling in control of their finances.

How do I sign up to offer money coaching through my church?

Good question! We want this process to be as easy as possible for you and your church.

Once you submit your initial enquiry, you’ll receive step-by-step instructions on how to sign up, including your church leaders agreeing to partner with us, attending training, setting up payments and getting all the resources you need to help your community get back in control of their finances.

Either — you get to choose! Our new online training platform means you control when and where you train. You may want to go through everything in a day, or choose to train over a few evenings.

If you need an excuse to break away from your usual workplace or escape home distractions, then our in-person training events may suit you better. There’s the added bonus of being able to ask plenty of questions as you go, and connecting with other Money Coaches in-training in your area.

You’ll select your training preference further down the sign-up process, so you don’t need to decide right now! (Please note, you’ll only be able to book onto these once you’ve completed all initial stages of the sign-up process).
