Christians Against Poverty (CAP) Debt Centre & Money Course
St John’s is the lead church for a group of churches who make up the Christians against Poverty New Malden and Kingston Debt Centre.
Christians against Poverty (CAP) began in 1996 when John Kirkby gave up his successful career in consumer finance to help people out of misery and poverty associated with unmanageable debt. Since then it has grown into a national charity with a vision to have a CAP Debt Centre, opened in partnership with a local church, in every town and city across the UK.
The Christians against Poverty website (www.capuk.org) states that, “We are passionate about lifting people out of debt and poverty through our award winning debt help service and money management course, the CAP Money Course.”
In the 2014 calendar year 6,169 new families were helped by CAP (in addition to the existing 6,126 families who were given further support). 12,295 individual clients (representing 15,984 adults and 12,000 children) were helped and by the end of the year there were 280 CAP Debt Centres open in the UK.
CAP has won many national awards for its work and the churches which comprise our local debt centre share the passion which is mentioned on the CAP website.
In conjunction with other local churches St. John's provides the well-known CAP Money Course. See the CAP website and our Coming Soon page to find the next course in New Malden or at another venue nearby.
