As part of the continued response to the Archbishop of Canterbury’s comments about payday lending, churches are being encouraged to raise awareness of credit unions by running pop-up information stalls after their services in June. This is an easy way for churches to join in with winning the ‘War on Wonga’.

The Church Credit Champions Network is running short training events across the Diocese to equip churchgoers to run stalls, or simply learn more about how to support credit unions.

As part of the continued response to the Archbishop of Canterbury’s comments about payday lending, churches across London and Merseyside are promoting and raising awareness of credit unions to their congregations in June.

In conjunction with Together Liverpool, we have been training and supporting volunteers to run pop-up information stalls in their churches this month. Over 30 churches, across the two cities, are taking part in this initiative to join in with winning the ‘War on Wonga’.

It is not too late if your church would like to be involved. Simply get in touch using the details below and we will resource you with all we need.
