CAP Job Club

Today sees the relaunch of our Job Club as a CAP Job Club.

With all that God has done through our relationship with CAP (Christians Against Poverty) and our Debt Advice Centre, it is exciting to be working with them on this new venture knowing what they will bring in terms of professionalism, vision, energy, evangelism and the desire that the poor and disadvantaged should receive the very best.

Richard White is our Job Club Manager and was trained by CAP back in July. Richard has already put in a tremendous amount of work not just in running the Job Club to this point but in preparing for the transition.

The Job Club will meet each Wednesday from 10.00am upstairs in The Kerith Centre. There will be three elements to each day – a course, one to one advice sessions and a drop in/community element. The Club will obviously work very well with the Debt Advice Centre, Foodbank, Social Justice Outreach and in mentoring ex-offenders. CAP have a national agreement with the DWP (Department of Work and Pensions) and so we can also expect to see referrals from Bracknell Jobcentre plus. If our Debt Advice experience is anything to go by then there is great potential here for reaching more people and seeing their lives transformed – offering them not just hope and a route back into work but the opportunity to meet Jesus.

Please pray for Richard and the launch.

Simon.

PS If you are interested in being involved or know someone who might be, please let Richard know on richardwhite@capjobclubs.org
