Advent 2016

// November 26th, 2016 // Comments Off // Events, Ian's blogs, News, Sean's blogs

I know that we’re still in November, but Christmas is just around the corner. The shops are full of seasonal goods and the advertisers are doing their best to tell us where to spend our money.
But this December you can do soemething different. Take a couple of minutes out of each day to find peace and connect with God. We’ve put together 25 short readings which start on 1st December and lead up to Christmas day.

The idea is a simple.

  1. Every day find a quiet place and just be silent for around one minute.
  2. Read the passage for the day
  3. Talk to God about what you’ve read (even if it’s only to say you don’t understand it!)

Free Money Management Course

// March 27th, 2013 // Comments Off // Events, News

Are you in control of your money or does it feel more like your money situation controls of you?

Money. It’s so easy to just spend it when we’ve got it and use our cards when we haven’t. It can be a quick route to debt, misery and despair. The CAP money management course is a proven tool to help you take charge of your spending, prioritise your needs and desires, make sensible decisions on saving and escape debt. Hope Community Church is giving everyone in Hanley and the wider Stoke and Newcastle areas, the chance to do this course and take control of their finances.

We will be running it several times a year and the next one is going to begin on April 16th and run every Tuesday for a total of 4 weeks. Each meeting starts at 7.15pm and lasts for about 90 minutes. Free tea and coffee will also be provided.

Course structure
week 1 – getting a grip on spending
week 2 – making a budget that works
week 3 Рoptional session to  provide extra assistance and help with online budgeting tools
week 4 – savings, maintaining your budget and debt reduction
