Alpha Programme - click for full sizeChristians Against Poverty (CAP) The local CAP centre is looking to appoint a debt coach to work alongside two experienced debt coaches to complete the team of three. The post is for 16 hours per week and the successful candidate will be fully trained (November 2022) and equipped to carry out this demanding but rewarding role. You will need to inspire people, remain emotionally strong, have good time management and administration skills and be confident in using the internet and IT. The work involves visiting clients in their homes and it is possible that some appointments may need to be carried out in the evening, although the bulk of work is expected to be during the day.
Further information can be obtained from Claire Atkin

Refresh Praise on Sunday 25th September Refresh Praise will be at Ebenezer Church on Sunday September 25th. Refreshments will be served from 6pm and worship will begin at 6.30 pm. Everyone is welcome.
