Sign up for free resources to help your church explore UK poverty in your Sunday service. 

At CAP, we’ve seen how poverty destroys lives. With millions more being pushed into poverty by the cost of living crisis, it’s time to take action.

Local churches are vital in the fight against UK poverty. We want to support you and your church as you play your part, empowering you to explore the reality of UK poverty through a biblical lens, and then respond.

This year’s theme is compassion in action, and your free resources for 2023 are available now. Sign up to get them today!

What is CAP Sunday?

A moment each year where we resource local churches across the UK to reflect on poverty, its impact in our communities, and explore the difference we can make as God’s people in our fight against it.

The official date for CAP Sunday is Sunday 15 October, but you’re welcome to choose a date that suits you.

What we will provide

  • Resources to guide your congregation in a time of prayer
  • Real-life video testimonies… and more!

A transformed life

We equip local churches to provide practical, emotional and holistic support to help people like Melinda, who face problem debt and poverty. Melinda is just one person you’ll meet through this year’s CAP Sunday resources, as she shares her journey out of debt. This journey wouldn’t have happened without the love and support of a church like yours.
