New Cap Centre in South Bristol
Severn Vineyard Church are delighted to announce that their CAP debt Centre is now officially open in the South of Bristol, working in partnership with Christians Against Poverty – CAP.
Rachel Goodchild has been appointed the Debt Centre manager and has been trained to set the Centre up, to create a friendly team of befrienders and make visits into people’s homes, correlating information for CAP to create a budget plan.
CAP is a charity that gives free help to everyone regardless of age, gender, faith or background bringing support, relief and hope into people’s situations. It was set up by John Kirby in 1996 who has an inspiring story to tell of his own journey out of homelessness and debt. CAP helps tens of thousands of people in hardship across the UK each year.
If someone needs help with their Debt, then they can self- refer to the friendly New Client enquiries team on 0800 328 0006.
Befrienders attend the visits with the Debt coach/Manager and will offer prayer as well as inviting clients to Church and events. They will continue the relationship and support with CAP until they are debt free. If you would like to become a befriender or would like more information then please email Rachel Goodchild on firstname.lastname@example.org.
Severn Vineyard has also started a life skills course that runs for 6 weeks at a time. These are a series of relaxed sessions giving people the confidence and decision – making skills to live well, look after themselves and feel positive, even on a low income. If you would like more information then please contact Shelley Neal, life skills manager on email@example.com.
