CAP Release Groups - partner with us

Thank you so much for considering opening a CAP Release Group at your church. You are joining a rapidly growing movement of people who are working together to tackle one of the biggest social problems facing us today. We are so excited for you to join us!

It’s really simple to get going with running a CAP Release Group. You will find everything you need by clicking on the simple steps below.

Stage 11. Speak with the CAP Release Groups team

We are available Monday to Friday to talk through what a CAP Release Group could look like at your church and how it will impact your community. There are limited places at our training days so get in touch today to talk it through:

Stage 33. We invite successful applicants to attend an Assessment Day and interview at CAP's head office in Bradford

Our Assessment Days are tailor made to prepare your candidate and ensure that they are fully informed about the role. We also conduct a 45-minute interview with them as part of the day.

Stage 44. Conversation with the church leader to discuss and confirm partnership

It is important that the church leadership is supportive of the CAP Release Group, and able to support and resource it. We need to talk to the church leader to feedback from the interviews and, if successful, confirm the partnership and discuss the on-going relationship.

Stage 55. Attend our three-day CAP Release Group training

After a successful interview, the Manager and Coaches will be invited to attend CAP Release Group training. Here, you will be equipped with everything you need to start a CAP Release Group at your church. There will also be the chance to meet and network with other trainees from across the UK, who share your heart and passion for those struggling with dependencies.

Then you’re ready to get started! You will be meeting a whole new group of people who you can share the love of God with in a practical way. 

Your church will need to be an evangelistic and discipling environment. Each week the CAP Release Group runs, you will see a group of people from outside the church come into the church community for practical help. Every meeting is an opportunity to encourage people into a relationship with Christ.

So many people who are desperate for your help are already in your communities - be sure to send your application in as soon as possible!
