And don’t hesitate to contact me if you would like any more info about any of this. I am supposed to be your friendly local neighbourhood St Matthew’s CAP rep!  And we are always looking for more volunteers to do all sorts of little jobs, from shopping with a client, or baby-sitting occasionally, or wrapping presents, as well as the slightly more time consuming befriender role. Again, please speak to Andy Jefferson, or me anytime about this.


For more information please do have a look at CAP’s website


If you hear of anyone in need of financial debt help, please encourage them to ring CAP’s Freephone helpline – 0800 328 0006. The service is friendly, supportive, confidential and completely free.

Our Oxford debt centre is part of the hugely successful Christians Against Poverty (CAP) charity, which now has over 300 debt centres across the UK offering free advice for people weighed down by debt.  CAP offers practical Christian love and witness by providing debt counselling help, financial and budgeting advice, and insolvency services. CAP-trained staff, accompanied by volunteers, visit clients in their homes to offer practical support, which includes planning budgets for clients, negotiating with creditors and, if necessary, providing emergency interim food shopping. d.

We also run the CAP Money course in Oxford; CAP Money is the largest provider of face-to-face adult financial education in the UK. The course is friendly, informative, and fun, and suitable for anyone, not just those with money problems. To find the next CAP money course near you, click here

We try to pray for CAP after the morning service at St Matthews on the 3rd Sunday of each month.

Do please, if you possibly can, join us for this; we are usually in the vestry.

This is real New Testament stuff - loosing the chains of oppression and bringing hope to the poor and isolated. It's massively exciting for Oxford and a fantastic Christian witness to the love of God.
