Christians Against Poverty

Christians Against Poverty offers help for those struggling with the burden of debt.

Christians Against Poverty (CAP) is an award winning, national debt counselling charity offering free help and advice through a network of debt centres based in the local church. CAP offers hope and a solution to people in debt through its top-quality, in-depth service as well as financial education through the CAP Money Course.

You don’t have to be a Christian to receive help from CAP and the service is free. If you are struggling with debt, help is available.

Above Bar Church aims to show God’s love in action by providing sustainable poverty relief through debt counselling, advice and practical help. Our ‘hands on’ approach empowers people to help themselves out of poverty and be released from the fear, oppression and worry generated by overwhelming debts. We are providing sustainable poverty relief as our service teaches clients vital budgeting skills that will last a lifetime.
