The first KCBC Christians Against Poverty CAP Money Course has just finished. I wanted to share how informative, encouraging and helpful this course has been.
It was very informal, friendly and supportive. We used the CAP booklet and watched sessions on the DVD.
Had some homework to do and shared honestly our tips and habits for handling money.
We found alternative ways to be good stewards and save money. Everyone had different reasons for doing the course.
You do not need to be in debt to benefit from it but if you are it can be the tool to changing your situation.
I would encourage anyone who may be thinking of doing this course to put their name down for the next one. Karen

Our Away Day

On the 16th of April we went to Heatree Activity Centre, Dartmoor.

We started our day with worship,



which was lead by Tom Hayes from Kings Church in Newton Abbot and a group of young musicians. We would like to thanks them for a great start to the day.



We then had a time of teaching and discussion led by Debbie Laycock, from Ichthus Forest Hill in London.



A bring and share meal was next

Then onto the adventure activities....

Our Christmas Events


Carols Around the Tree Friday 11th December 7pm
One of the town councillors has a vision for an annual town celebration of Christmas around the tree at the Fountain (next to Mini-Tesco).
The idea of a public, open service in the town sound like something that the churches got excited about and supported it.
We wrapped up warm, went down to the Fountain for half an hour of carols.

May his love light your way this Christmas and always.


Operation Christmas Child


This year we again filled boxes with gifts are sent to children who live in extreme poverty often in orphanages. Many are victims of war or come from families where parents are too ill or too poor to take care of them.
A shoebox with simple things like a toothbrush, toothpaste, a ball, pencils and notebook, a woolly hat etc. mean so much to children who otherwise would receive no gifts at Christmas.

Shoe box appeal
