'I could not be more of a fan of the work that CAP do in tackling the giant of poverty that creates uncertainty and fear in communities all across the UK'

Our CAP Story

Alan — Causeway Coast Vineyard

I grew up in a home that was wrecked by debt. It’s one of the reasons I’m grateful for the work of Christians Against Poverty. They not only embrace the Biblical value of removing the burden of debt from lives, but they create a pathway for hope for so many.

I can think of many people today in our community whose lives are improved by their connection with Christians Against Poverty. One lady wouldn’t even leave her home until the day CAP showed up and began to bring peace into the realm of her finance, but even more than that, peace to her life in its entirety. And today she’s flourishing; she’s working in the community; she’s bringing life to others. None of that would have been possible without a partnership with CAP.

The truth is, we expected all along that this partnership would transform the lives of individuals and families, but what has surprised us is the impact CAP has had on our church family. We are witnessing people engaged and mobilised into their kingdom purposes. People who never knew what their calling was are suddenly coming along as they realise that God has called them to put their shoulder to the work of CAP in the community.

I could not be more of a fan of the work that CAP do in tackling the giant of poverty that creates uncertainty and fear in communities all across the UK. As you explore what it means to demonstrate the heart of the Father, to release compassion in your community, can I encourage you to consider the work of Christians Against Poverty?
