If you’re a CAP client, please stop reading now…..or it’ll spoil the surprise.
But otherwise, do read on!
Hopefully you already know that Christ Church has a partnership with Christians Against Poverty to deliver a free debt counselling service for our local community. We’ve been operating at full capacity in the second half of the year and been able to walk part of the journey with those who are struggling under the crushing burden of debt. And now we are approaching the season of Christmas, which should be a time that brings joy but often it brings a stark reminder that life is really hard.
So we would love to bring something of the joy of Christmas to our CAP Debt Centre clients by blessing them with a Christmas hamper. And we would love you to experience the blessing of being a part of this too! As the Lord blesses us, may we be inspired to bless others also!
There are some very practical ways you can get involved with this, if you are able, to help collect together some items for the hampers for our clients. Some ideas of what you could contribute are below, though please feel free to be creative! (Please check use by dates are at least January.)
The items can be delivered to the box at the back of church or to Sam Rich. Any questions phone 07725 607425 or email email@example.com. Thank you in advance for being a source of blessing, prayer, encouragement and enthusiasm for serving others in our community who are going through a difficult time. We thank God for each and every one of you and we pray God’s blessing on you all in this advent season.
