Here at CBC we work together with Christians Against Poverty [CAP] to run the Chichester CAP Debt Centre. Our Debt Centre provides a completely free debt counselling service, available to anyone struggling with unmanageable debt in and around the Chichester area.

We provide ongoing help, support and love to all our clients regardless of their faith, race, age, gender, marital status, or disability.

CAP is an award-winning charity that helps people out of debt through budgeting and their own unique payment plan, and nationally sees over 2500 people become debt free every year.

What does your organisation do?

It is our privilege to be part of the Parklands community in Chichester, and we seek to serve our community in a number of ways.

First and foremost we believe that God has entrusted us with the message of hope – the “good news of great joy” that Jesus Christ, the Saviour of the world, has come that we might be reconciled with God (Luke 2:10-11).

We try to match our activities to our message by using our time and resources to put on events that will benefit the local community. Examples of this would be Acorns, our parent and toddler group, and Lunch Club, where we provide meals for the elderly.

Where we can we like to be able to make our resources, particularly our premises, available to non-for-profit organisations.

Throughout the year we get out of the building and into the local area in various ways, such as the Noise project and Carols on the Greens.

What support does your organisation offer? Our church buildings are generally open during the week [Mondays – Fridays] 9-5 and of course on Sundays.
