15.4.12 - Christians against Poverty
Christians Against Poverty (CAP) is a national debt counselling charity working through a network of centres based in local churches. CAP offers hope and a solution to anyone in debt through its unique, in-depth service.
CAP aims to show God’s love in action by providing sustainable poverty relief through debt counselling, advice and practical help. CAP’s unique ‘hands on’ approach empowers people to help themselves out of poverty and be released from the fear, oppression and worry generated by overwhelming debts.
The charity operates through a growing network of UK centres, all opened in partnership with a local church. CAP began in 1996 when John Kirkby, armed with a £10 donation, started to help people in his local community who were trapped in debt.
The charity is now a fast-paced, growing organisation whose vision is to answer the national problem of debt in the UK by having at least one CAP centre operating in every major town and city by the year 2015.

Your church can partner with Christians Against Poverty to bring hope and salvation to those living in debt and poverty on your doorstep, through their first class debt counselling service and by opening a CAP centre.
CAP has 21 centres in London and is looking for churches to partner – please click here for more information and here to listen to a short clip from a video that can be played in your church during a CAP Sunday.
