Acorn Community Church


This is provided through Acorn’s ‘CAP Centre’ covering Whitley Bay, North Shields, Shiremoor and surrounding areas and offers free debt advice and support to some of those in greatest need in our local community.

CAP offers hope and a solution to anyone in debt through its free, unique, in-depth service.

CAP is practical – we demonstrate God’s love in action by providing sustainable poverty relief through debt counselling, advice and practical help and offer this free service to the whole community irrespective of religious belief. CAP’s unique ‘hands on’ approach empowers people to help themselves out of poverty and be released from the fear, oppression and worry generated by overwhelming debts. In addition we teach clients vital budgeting skills that will last a lifetime.

"The worst thing someone in debt can do is stay silent, so anyone in financial difficulty in the area is urged to contact CAP on 0800 328 0006.
Being in debt is nothing to be ashamed of – ring us now and take your first steps
on your journey out of debt."

CAP offers hope – we talk about God’s love for each individual, offering hope, peace, healing and fulfilment, through Jesus, to everyone.  Most clients accept our offer of prayer right from the beginning and many start on their journey of faith as we introduce Jesus to them. 
Here’s what some of our clients have to say:

‘From day 1, the pressure was lifted as we talked through our debt problems with them (CAP)’

‘It’s not always easy paying off my debt, but with the support of CAP I hope to get things sorted out’

‘CAP do more than just help me pay my debts; they’ve become real friends to me’

’Through CAP my debt has got under control AND I’m starting to realise that life is not so bad afterall – I think God has something to do with that!’

90% of clients say that since becoming involved with CAP, their lives have changed for the better.
