CAP Newbury Debt Centre Monthly Prayer Meetings


​The CAP Newbury Debt Centre really appreciate your prayers and know lots of you are praying for them on a regular basis.  Prayer is so important as a foundation for any endeavour.  As such they have decided to have a regular corporate prayer meeting once a month on the last Tuesday of the month.  

Join them, if you can, at St Nicolas Hall on the last Tuesday of the month at 19:30.  Please could you let us know if you can make it to ensure we have enough space and seating for everyone.
