Debt can happen to anyone, for a variety of reasons. Every year, together with local churches, CAP (Christians Against Poverty) helps hundreds of families get back on their feet and work their way out of debt. Our free, one-of-a-kind debt counselling service works with each unique client to create a budget that puts priority on food and rent, negotiate with creditors and establish a long-term repayment plan—so that people become completely debt free!

CAP-ReleaseGroups-Logo-Cutout-2

Release Groups is a relatively new ministry by Christians Against Poverty (CAP), designed to help people who are struggling with life-controlling habits. Debilitating, crushing, impossible to overcome – just some of the words associated with habits like smoking, drinking, shopping and even internet addiction. But this is where CAP and the local church come in. Release Groups gives the church a practical way to help people overcome their life-controlling habits – and experience the freedom that the love of God brings! Launching this year, Release Groups will be run in support-group style, at Papsda. It’s a safe place, where people who are being held captive by their habits or addictions can come and share, work through a course workbook, and receive one-on one coaching and ongoing support. We have a new course starting Wednesday, 2 August 2017. Register by emailing Richard Newson at richard.newson@capnz.org
