Christmas in the Church is more than just carols (press release)

Christmas in the Church is more than just carols


King’s Church Penwortham on Thursday 12 December are hosting a get together for all the people they’ve been helping with unemployment in 2019.


The Christians Against Poverty (CAP) Job Club run by King’s Church has been helping people for more than six years


Mark Willett Job Club Manager, said: “Our Christmas event is about more than just having a Christmas lunch together. It’s about celebrating everything that our members have achieved this year.


“They have worked hard and supported one another.  It feels that we have become like a big happy family.” 


CAP helps people with problem debt and delivers a range of courses via CAP Job Clubs for jobseekers, the CAP Money Course which gives help on money management, CAP Life Skills which provides tools for managing on a budget and Fresh Start which supports people to break some habitual dependencies like smoking, catalogue shopping or internet gambling.  


Mark said: “In addition to all of this, our team of volunteers put on amazing events for CAP clients which creates some beautiful memories so that all our clients, single or families, can feel a part of something special this Christmas. So yes we have mince pies and carols but we offer far more than that.”


Former CAP Job Club member, Maurice , said: “I got help getting back into work and being over 60 – that’s not easy.”
