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! 

Unfortunately some of our volunteers have moved away, retired or have other commitments, and our rota has gaps, so we urgently need more helpers - not all are ladies!

PLEASE could you help for about 3 hours one Thursday a month, in school term time, with the Chepstow Lunch Club, organised by Churches Together, at the Methodist Church Hall?

For further information contact Sandy Dickson 01291 629488 or Lynda Ker 01291 625711

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 will open in November 2014!

There are a few stages to go through first and in the meantime we are fund raising and collecting pledges towards the cost of £500 - £700 per month it will cost us to provide this service to Chepstow and district.

We have a steering group and if you would like to join this group, add your pledge of financial support to our list or would like to help us to fund raise, please contact us via this email link:
