CAP Debt Centre

WBC is excited to be involved locally in the life changing work of CAP - Christians Against Poverty


Christians Against Poverty is a national debt counselling charity with a network of debt centres based in local churches. CAP offers hope and a solution to people in debt through its top quality, in-depth service.

Wallingford Baptist Church, along with Ridgeway Community Church and Cholsey St Mary’s, has partnered with CAP to offer debt counselling in our community.
The service we offer is completely free.

Our local Debt Centre opened in 2015, and well over 100 households have been in touch with the centre to date. As of June 2020 a total of 40 clients have gone completely debt free - what a difference to those 40 households!

It takes a lot of time and holistic support to help an individual or family do this. Several members of WBC volunteer with CAP in different ways and there are lots of opportunities to get involved or give to the work - why not speak to Sue Bright on a Sunday morning?

CAP News
May 2019: Latest client report launched: Changing Perceptions, which features the incredible story of CAP client Nicky.  It's a truly eye-opening read, shining a light on the reality of life in poverty in the UK. Take a look:

In October 2018 the London School of Economics published a report on the Social Value of CAP's work - it makes amazing reading as you can see from the following extract...

"The service is local, personalised, long term, deals with debt and the causes of debt and is a great help for vulnerable and isolated clients."

The headline value statement is that for around £8.7m expenditure in a year, the value of CAP's work to society is around £31.5m!

Planning your Visit

A Warm Hello 

The following information is specifically for those planning a visit, so that you know, beforehand, what to expect on a Sunday morning.

Where and When

We meet at the Church Building (details below) for our Sunday Service starting at 10.30am. For your first visit, we recommend arriving 10-15 minutes early to ensure you get a parking space and find somewhere to sit before the service begins. When you arrive, you should be greeted by someone on our Welcome Team.

Plan your journey: 

Open Google Maps

Accessibility: There is wheelchair access, and a sound loop for anyone who needs it. Please let one of the Welcome Team know on your arrival and they will help you to get set up. There is a disabled toilet in the main foyer.

Our Service

The main service begins at 10.30am with a warm welcome from our Pastor or another member of our team. Then we have a time of sung worship, led by musicians. Sometimes a person might pray out loud or read a small passage from the Bible. Sometimes people share things that they believe God is saying to the whole church family. This might seem strange the first time you hear it but it’s all part of our connecting with God. One of our leaders will then give a sermon that is Bible based and that we can apply to our everyday life. We then finish with a final worship song.

What about my kids?

We have a great programme lined up for kids of all ages:
Under normal circumstances you can expect to find the following groups on a Sunday morning, though during the pandemic we are doing our children's work in different ways and at different times, so it's best to contact us for more up to date information.

  • Creche (0 months to 3 years). Children under 6 months are welcome but must be accompanied by their grown-up at all times.
  • Splashgang (school years R-2)
  • Supergang (school years 3-6)
  • Young people (school year 6+)

Children stay with their grown-ups at the start of the service for the welcome, songs and notices. We really value worshipping God all together as a family. Someone will announce that it’s time for the younger members to go to their various groups.

The kids group activities vary depending on the age but usually there is a friendly welcome, Bible stories, praying, music, craft, fun games and free play. Please pick your children up as soon as the service finishes.


Getting Connected

Life Groups

While Sundays are a great way to meet new people, it is often in smaller gatherings that you can really get to know someone. Being part of one of our life groups allows you to make new friends, share together and support each other. We have a variety of groups that meet throughout the week, some afternoons and some evenings. Check out our Life Groups page and contact us. We can put you in touch with a life group leader who will be more than happy to invite you along to their group.
