Debt Survivors DocumentaryChristians Against Poverty

Would you believe me if I told you that the BBC were dedicating an entire hour of prime time TV to share stories of how CAP is bringing hope to those in desperate need?  Well, that’s exactly what’s about to happen – on Friday 5 October at 9pm on BBC2, The Debt Saviours will be focusing on how, through the incredible partnerships with local churches, this family called CAP are transforming lives all across the UK.

Prayer Time – Please join us in Aberfeldy for 24/7 prayer to surround this CAP event, on Friday 5 October 2 – 3.00pm. Please pray that this documentary would be a blessing and a life-line to those who may be watching and struggling with unmanageable debt!
