Local churches are set to run free sessions to help people in Ballymena get on top of their household finances.

 Following specialised training from UK charity Christians Against Poverty, members of Trinity Presbyterian Church, Ahoghill and Harryville Presbyterian Church, Ballymena are offering the short course aimed to putting the joy back into money by teaching people how to chart their household income and take control of their expenditure.

 Money coach Alison Chestnutt, who will be leading the sessions called the CAP Money course, said: “If you know how to save and budget effectively, it can have a hugely positive impact on the whole family.”

 The three week course begins on Tuesday September 16 at 10:30am in Trinity Presbyterian Church Hall and then on Wednesday October 1 at 10:30am in Harryville Presbyterian Church Hall.
