Credit Champions Make a Difference for Churches
Over the last year, London Capital Credit Union has been partnering with local churches as part of the Archbishop of Canterbury’s ‘Credit Champions Network’ scheme.

The project is designed to unlock the resources of local churches – people, money, buildings, and relationships – for the benefit of community finance organisations.

Sam Rylands is one of the ‘Credit Champions’ from Tollington Parish in North London. He says: “After listening to members of our congregations and community we realised that debt was a huge issue for our people, often being caused or exacerbated by payday lenders. 

“We want to be a visible witness of God’s love in our community, and so we decided to act. We’ve been working with the local Catholic Church, St Mellitus, to encourage our congregations to open savings accounts with the credit union as an affordable alternative to payday lenders. 

“Our joint aim is to have over 100 sign-ups from across our congregations and we are already well over halfway to achieving our goal!”
