July news and prayer update


We give thanks for our wonderful befrienders, for the invaluable companionship and support they give to our clients.


We are recruiting a second Debt Coach to work with clients and support Jonathan, our Debt Centre Manager.

June news and prayer update 


We thank God for enabling Phill Mayhew in the prayer coordinator role. It’s God’s work that we do so prayer underpins everything and is of fundamental importance. Let us know if anyone would like to join our monthly prayer meeting by Zoom or receive the prayer letter to pray for our work at home.

For Prayer

Please pray for resilience for our clients. It can be a long, tough process to deal with debts and many of our clients are also experiencing other difficult situations in their lives.

May news and prayer updates


We thank God that we have two new clients. This is a real answer to prayer.


Some CAP centres around the country have sadly closed with the difficulties of the last year. The regional co-ordinator finds the many ways we are still supporting our clients inspirational – the latest is a book club. All your prayers, giving and involvement have contributed to this and it's wonderful.

For Prayer

Please pray for safety and confidence for clients, Jonathan and befrienders as we return to face-to-face contact.

Also please pray that God will move people with compassion to become new befrienders.
