CAP – Christians Against Poverty – currently have a stronger presence and support than ever within Holland Road Baptist Church. Running courses to help with financial difficulties, and providing practical and emotional support to clients, the team is reaching more and more people across Brighton & Hove. We were able to hand out over 60 hampers for Christmas, and hopefully by the time you come to read this we have been able to give our clients and their families Easter eggs along with an invitation to our services. Clients are really moved by these acts of kindness, and the Cap money team have already run one course this year which was well attended. Three attendees took up the invitation to attend Alpha, and one made a commitment to follow Jesus. A special student course is planned for June 25th, so if you are off to University this is for you!
Also in June the team have been invited to run a course at the Whitehawk Inn, so we are now reaching other parts of our city. Through our St Peter’s sponsored debt coach, Becky, we have been involved with St Cuthman’s in Whitehawk. On Wednesday mornings they run a drop in where people can come in and hear about CAP, and from the middle of March they will also run a Trussell Trust food bank.
Thank you for all your support and prayers, please contact any of us if you would like to be involved. We mainly need people on Tuesdays and Thursdays but there are other ways and times you can help. Visit www.capuk.org or www.hrbc.org.uk/cap for more information.
