St Mary’s is one of seven churches that have formed a partnership to support the CAP Mole Valley Debt Centre.
Christians Against Poverty are launching Kickstart. The sessions are running alternate Tuesday and Wednesday evenings starting on Wednesday 11 November for five weeks. These sessions will be Virtual. Please email Jennie Coles for further information.
During this time, they will be taking feedback which will hopefully help to inform them of their next steps. It would be better if people joined for all sessions and this would also help build relationships and a sense of community and make it easier for them to signpost people towards what is happening in churches near them. Sessions include the following topics: Anxiety and Worry, Lifting financial pressure, Handling habits, Making your money go further, Handling loss. Please feel free to share widely.

Christians Against Poverty 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 Debt Help 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 is a fast-paced, growing organisation whose vision is to answer the national problem of debt in the UK by having at least one CAP Debt Centre operating in every major town and city. A number of churches across Mole Valley have partnered with CAP to offer debt counselling in Mole Valley. The service we offer is completely free. Visit the CAP website to find out more about our services. If you are struggling with debt call 0800 328 0006 to book an appointment with Mole Valley Debt Centre.
Prayer is vital to the work of CAP and prayer meetings take place on the second and third Monday evenings of each month in Bookham and Dorking respectively. This is a good time to find out about what is happening locally and nationally and to pray for Jennie (the Centre Manager), Richard (the debt coach), the volunteers, the clients, the steering group and staff at Head Office in Bradford, who do an amazing job.
