Christians Against Poverty (CAP) – could you help?


The Market Drayton Debt Centre and courses are a vital part of the ministry of the churches in the area as we seek to show the love of Jesus to some of the most vulnerable people in our communities.


We need some help with the running of our courses and in particular for the next Job Club course and Life Skills Course which are starting soon.  There are lots of ways you could get involved.


Job Club


Each job club course runs for 8 consecutive weeks and is held on a Monday (starting from Mon 23rd May) at The Zone, off Linden Way.  It runs from 12.30pm - 2.45pm but volunteers are needed from 12 noon until 3pm.


There are various ways you could help:


  • We are looking for friendly, approachable volunteers willing to support people on their jobseeking journey.  The volunteers need to be keen to talk to others about Jesus, willing to pray for people, good at written communication and happy to sit alongside and encourage people as they write ideas and thoughts in their workbooks.


  • We need help with someone on the door to greet people as they arrive and set the welcoming, friendly tone of the club and just chat to clients.


  • We need help with the catering - simple meals such as jacket potato, soup, lasagne, quiche and salad etc - there is a kitchen and oven at the Zone but the food would have to be pre-prepared.


  • We need people to help with washing up and clearing up after the course.


If you can help in any way, contact Ali Doulton

Life Skills Course


Would you like to join the CAP Life Skills Team helping to transform lives here in Market Drayton? 


Help is needed with providing refreshments to course participants, also with befriending and encouraging members who may struggle with literacy and numeracy skills.


The course runs every academic term for 8 weeks but you DO NOT have to commit to every course … any help would be much appreciated - it is super opportunity to be part of God’s work in our wonderful community where you CAN make a difference.


The next course begins on Thursday 19th May from 12.15 – 2.30pm at the Parish Rooms.
