Christians Against Poverty is a national debt counselling charity working through a network of centres based in local churches. In Leicester one of those partnerships is with Meadows Community Church.

CAP offers hope and a solution to anyone in debt through its unique and in-depth service

CAP aims to show God’s love in action by providing sustainable poverty relief through debt counselling, advice, and practical help. CAP’s unique hands-on approach empowers people to help themselves out of poverty and be released from the fear, oppression and worry generated by overwhelming debts. We are providing sustainable poverty relief as our service teaches clients vital budgeting skills that will last a lifetime.

The charity operates through a growing network of UK churches, all opened in partnership with a local church. CAP began in 1996 when John Kirkby, armed with a £10 donation, started to help people in his local community who were trapped in debt.

With over 150 centres across the UK, the charity is now a fast-paced, award winning organisation whose vision is to answer the national problem of debt in the UK by having at least one CAP centre operating in every major town and city by the year 2014. CAP has helped over 30,000 people and has always found a solution for everyone.

At Meadows Community Church the centre is managed by Pete Owers
