Lunch Club

Each Thursday a team of volunteers prepare and serve up to 40 elderly local people a 3-course home cooked meal at the Methodist Church Hall. Apart from the happy "clients" and job satisfaction, there is always plenty of chat and laughter in the kitchen during preparation, serving and clearing up!

If you would like to volunteer to help with the cooking or serving, please contact Sandy Dickson: 01291 629488

 

CAP Debt Centre

 STOP PRESS NEWS!

CAP (Christians Against Poverty) are a UK based charity which was set up 10 years ago to help people in financial difficulty to find their way out of debt. Local churches partner with CAP to provide a local CAP Debt Centre in their town or area and Churches Together in Chepstow & District are pleased to announce that our new Chepstow & District CAP Debt Centre is now open!

This is a free service, helping people out of debt and back to life.

Call 0800 328 0006 if you need help.

* Calls are free from most landlines. Mobile operators may charge for calls to 0800 numbers. If you have inclusive minutes in your mobile phone tariff, please call 01274 760839 to avoid any charge for calls to non-geographic numbers.
