King's Lynn debt service continues by phone and Zoom
The Christians Against Poverty (CAP) debt counselling service in King's Lynn is moving all of its appointments from face-to-face to phone, so as to continue supporting clients during the lockdown.
The new client enquiry line 0800 328 006 has temporarily closed bookings for new appointments. However, people can still call to receive information and referrals to other phone-based debt help agencies.
Local CAP Debt Centre Manager Emily Hart writes:
“I hope you are all well and staying safe during these different times we are living in. I want to encourage you with Lamentations 3:22-23, no matter what we're facing, God is faithful!
“Whilst we are limited in what we can do, and where we can go at this time, it does not mean God cannot move. At King's Lynn Debt Centre we have already seen God's faithfulness to be proved true in this past week, God is moving on the hearts of people we are working with, with barriers being broken down, trust being built to share life stories and even one praying the prayer of salvation. Praise the Lord!
“Connection is key even more so at this time for our clients. Many of them were struggling with mental health such as anxiety and depression before the outbreak of coronavirus. The extra stress and pressure of this current situation just adds the difficulties of those already struggling mentally.
“We were running a CAP Lounge which provided an opportunity for our clients to come out and have a break from their surroundings, a chat and connection with our other clients. During this season we are going to run virtual drop-ins where clients can connect with myself, others and volunteers on a weekly basis.”
Kings Lynn CAP has managed to transition its Alpha course to an online version, and it had a successful first virtual meeting with lots of discussion.
On Wednesday April 8 at 12 noon the charity will be running a virtual prayer meeting by Zoom. Anyone who would like to be added to this meeting can write to Emily Hart on firstname.lastname@example.org
