There are thousands of families in communities all over New Zealand, suffering in debt, living in isolation, struggling to feed their children – without any hope of a way out. By partnering with CAP, you can bring vital Debt Help and hope to these families just outside your church doors.
How CAP equips your church
Our Debt Help service is holistic and comprehensive: Your church will be trained and equipped to help people as they begin to deal with their debt, and CAP will provide the long-term support these new client families need as they pay off the debt.
Most importantly, by helping people in their homes and through their darkest hours, you will have the chance to demonstrate God's love in action!

What church partners are saying
“We love the heart of CAP, and their desire to partner with local churches to reach the poor and needy in their communities. And, we love how effective the CAP model is at practically helping those in need and opening the door to helping them spiritually as well.” -- Senior Ps Paul De Jong, Life Church, Auckland
“Since becoming a "CAP church" every one of us has been invited into the adventure of reaching the disadvantaged and poor of our community, and we are seeing God change our church as we reach out into our community.” -- Senior Ps Nick Field, The Street Church, Wellington
“Since opening a CAP Debt Centre, we have also seen life changes among some of the CAP client families, some due to having the debt load lifted from their back; others due to simple acts of kindness from church members!” -- Vicar John Marquet, All Saints, Palmerston North
