Event Details

Stockport Credit Union and Transforming Lives Together invite Stockport churches to an event to learn about the early results of a Just Finance Network pilot project, and the work of Stockport Credit Union locally.

12:00 pm Refreshments

12:30 Welcome, Kath Leigh, Transforming Lives Together 

12:40 Julia Webster, Church Credit Champions Network (CCCN) Coordinator, Together Liverpool 

CCCN has been set up by The Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby to help church communities tackle issues of money, debt and credit. They draw together church resources such as buildings, people, finance, time and experience and harness them to work together to help people to move out of cycles of debt and poverty. They also enable community-based finance initiatives such as helping local credit unions to grow.

  • A report back on the pilot of The Archbishop of Canterbury's Mustard Seed Appeal, which bridges the gap between communities, churches and financial providers.

Workshop

  • How churches and the credit union can work together to provide an ethical option for local people whose financial needs are not being met by high street lenders.

Organizer

Stockport Credit Union

Stockport Credit Union:

Provides secure savings and affordable loans to people who live or work in S1 - SK8. Formed from the merger of 4 smaller credit unions in 2005, Stockport Credit Union has a strong ethical base and a mission to provide savings and loans to meet the needs of a very diverse borough.

Stockport has both wealthy and economically deprived areas within its borders. Stockport Credit Union aims to build on the civic pride of Stopfordians to build a strong, independent credit union that is a resource for people in all areas of the borough. The credit union keeps local money circulating in our local economy, and provides a way for Stockport citizens to save and borrow affordably.

Transforming Lives Together:

Our aim is to enable church communities to identify their gifts and assets which will help them to engage their communities in tackling poverty in all its forms. We are starting to do this by;​

Listening – feeding back, making connections, sharing good practice (through events, social media etc.)​
Building partnerships between churches and between churches and other sectors​
Offering practical support e.g. ‘Know Your Church Know your Neighbourhood’, Together Grant applications
