New opportunities to serve the people of Colchester

How Can You Volunteer With CAP?

There are many opportunities, using a variety of skill sets. Anyone can be involved with the amazing work that CAP do.

Do You Like To Pray?

Do you hear God’s voice and love to share it?  Then maybe the prayer team is for you.  Prayer support is vital to CAP’s work. We host our own regular prayer meetings that you could join. Or, we would be delighted if you could commit to praying either with your church family as part of your regular prayer.  If you are interested then please contact Ben Benest, our CAP prayer team leader.

Are You Good At Being A Friend?

Maybe you have a good listening ear or are good at practically supporting people, especially in difficult times. Then our befriender role could be for you.  A befriender is someone who has a passion for people and lives out what it means to build community. Being in debt is often linked to social isolation for many of our clients. Befrienders accompany debt coaches into clients homes to support them during the visit and beyond, helping them to find paperwork, to make difficult phone calls and to get them out and about rediscovering the joy that can be found in life.  Contact Bec Taylor to find out more via our contact us page.

Are You A Practical Person?

Someone who loves to use everyday skills to bless other people?  Client blessing may be right up your street.  Sometimes our clients need an emergency food shop or fuel voucher. Other times they may need a washing machine or a wardrobe.  Sometimes we just want to bless them with a birthday cake. If you are able to help us then we would be so grateful. Please contact Paula Goddard or Bec Taylor.

Is Bringing Joy Something You Flourish At?

Jesus did all things for the joy set before Him- there is joy in heaven and we want to spread it around!  Many of our clients have little joy in their lives.  Our client events are designed to do just that- to bring people into community and show them that there are good times to be had.  They are also a way of us communicating the gospel to people and helping them to find the biggest joy on earth- Jesus!  These events take people power to make them happen- planning, setting up, shopping, serving. Contact Bec Taylor to join in!

Are You Naturally Evangelistic?

Then contact Flora Tozowonah to find out how you can help share the gospel.

Do you have skills that you can use to raise money?

We are very blessed to have access to grants, but there is always room for more and there is much fun to be had in joining with others or taking on a personal challenge for a worthy cause.  If you would like to fundraise for us then please contact Patsi Brown
