Community Church Killingworth


In these times of recession when money is tight or changes in circumstances means it’s difficult to make ends meet, the good news is there’s help at hand. A local branch of the national award winning debt counselling charity, Christians Against Poverty is now open in Killingworth. CAP offers hope and a solution to anyone in debt through its unique service by offering free face-to-face debt counselling to everyone in the community, not only Christians. The service is unique because the charity visits people in their own home, sets a budget, contacts creditors and then offers support until the client is debt free – often within just five years.
CAP works with local churches and has over 150 centres across the UK and now Community Church Killingworth, with the support of St John’s Church, Killingworth, has opened a CAP
centre with the aim of helping local people get out of debt. This has all been made possible by the generous grant of £5000 from the Killingworth Christian Council and on-going financial support of the members of Community Church Killingworth and St John’s.
Gwyneth Mayo (pictured on the right) is our centre manager. Gwyneth is a recently retired teacher who has been fully trained by CAP  for her new role and is keen to help people become debt free. All CAP managers can access expert advice from its headquarters in Bradford. If you think that CAP can help you with your debt why not call 0800 328 0006 or visit ? Remember, the service is absolutely free.

No real problems but could do with some advice on how to handle your money? The CAP Money course could be just what you need. This is a great, but very simple money management course which runs for three evening or afternoon sessions and aims to help you get -and then stay - in control of your finances. Regular courses, which again are free, are held locally. We recently ran a couple of CAP Money course alongside our regular Sunday morning worship meeting based on feedback that this was a convenient time for families and we'll be repeating this again soon. To find out about the next CAP Money course please phone 07967636041 or visit
