Christian debt counselling idea for Norwich

CAPHammerChristian debt counselling charity Christians Against Poverty is looking to set up a church-based centre in Norwich.
Mark and Anne-Marie Willetts from the King’s Lynn centre were at the Living Water Festival near Norwich to try to establish contacts and support for the idea locally.
CAP has around 40 centres all over the country offering free debt counselling. Each centre is based in a local church.
“We contacted CAP initially to get help ourselves only to find out that at that time they didn’t have a centre in Norfolk at all,” said Mark.
“God has laid it on our hearts to reach out to people who are going through the same struggle as ourselves or worse but don’t have the Lord to rely on.”
The couple are based at King’s Lynn Baptist Church and are presently in the process of setting up a local centre and plan to approach other churches in the town for help.
CAP is a not-for-profit charity and offers a free personal service. They will work out a budget for people in financial difficulties so that they have money to live on as well as pay off their creditors.
The aim is that anyone who comes to CAP will be debt-free within five years.
If you would like more information on setting up a centre or supporting the charity should either visit the exhibition at the Living Water Festival until August 16 or visit the website:
