Christian's Against Poverty (CAP)
Lynn has now been trained as a debt coach. We have a dedicated
prayer group that meets every first Monday evening of the month.
There are also a number of people who have expressed an interest
in being debt coaches. Some have come from other Churches and
two from other groups of Churches. A number of people have also
volunteered to bake cakes that Lynn and the befrienders can take
on their first visit to new clients. Lynn is now spending a
month contacting potential referrers. We hope to see our first CAP
client on or around the 10th Nov. Thank you all so much for your
continued support. If anyone else would like to offer to help or want
more information please contact either Isobel (620409) or Lynn
(07539 477286)

Thursday 27th - Saturday 29th November. If you are able to give just
an hour of your time at some point over these 3 days to help out,
please contact our foodbank co-ordinator, Sarah Coleman
(07931911869/[email protected]) ..... you may get a
bit cold (November weather!!) but your heart will be warmed by the
amazing generosity of the people of Chepstow at this time.
Up-to-date information about our foodbank can be read at, where you will also find the
latest newletter.
Back to our week-in, week-out is a list of food items
that are most needed at the moment to keep our shelves well
stocked: Tinned Potatoes, Tinned Carrots, Tinned Sweetcorn,
Tinned Sponge Puddings, Dried Mashed Potato, Instant Noodles
(for those with limited cooking facilities), Treats eg. Crisps or
Chocolate (if families are struggling to provide the food basics,
treats are often impossible to buy...and we all enjoy a treat every
now and then!)
As ever, thank you so much for your continued support. I am
always amazed every Sunday morning when I see yet more
foodstuffs in the collection box.....not wanting any recognition for
what they do, people just quietly and faithfully pop something in wonderful! Hilary Collins
