Such a lovely buzz after Rob Small’s talk at the CAP (Christians Against Poverty) launch, with many signing up to support and find out more. Thank you all!
Sarah Harris outlines more exciting opportunities:
Following on from our CAP Sunday service on 28 April and the Life Skills meeting on Thursday 3 May, we still require a couple of groups of people to be on hand when required:
- It is vital that we have a dedicated prayer team for CAP, and possibly ‘prayer warriors’, whilst the course is running. If you feel you could be a part of, or perhaps you could head this up, please contact me.
- We also require befrienders, males especially please! Befrienders are a really important role for the Life Skills course. Pat Smart and I would really appreciate your help and support in this role, which involves coming alongside clients, just being a friendly face, and hopefully building up a friendship with them. The aim is to help them feel safe and encouraged to attend each week and to continue the friendship once the course has ended. You do not require any special training to be a befriender, but please speak with me if you have any concerns.
You can contact me by email firstname.lastname@example.org or my CAP mobile number is 07741 909782.
I look forward to hearing from you! God bless!
Sarah Harris, CAP representative
Wondering about these CAP books?
Peter Gill reviews Nonetheless by John Kirkby and Journeys of Hope
Both these books were promoted recently by CAP at our Sunday morning service and are available for borrowing from the church library.
Nonetheless is the personal story of CAP’s founder, John Kirkby, and his roller coaster life, which eventually resulted in him forming CAP – a fascinating story of disaster, despair and eventual hope as he encountered God and obeyed Him.
Journeys of Hope is a collection of 12 inspirational true stories of people from all walks of life who contacted CAP, and how God transformed their lives.
I can thoroughly recommend both books to challenge you and build your faith in God!
PS Don’t be put off by uninspiring front covers or well-worn pages! This applies to all books!
