This message to Church Leaders comes from Bristol Mayor Marvin Rees and Andy Street, Chair of Christian Action Bristol:
We would like to invite you to a Church Partnership Day, which we have organized with Christians Against Poverty (CAP). The event will be held at Victoria Park Baptist Church on Wednesday 4th October 2017. This event provides an amazing opportunity for you to find out new ways of reaching your community with the good news of Jesus through the work of CAP.
We’re pleased to say that the Mayor of Bristol, Marvin Rees, will be attending and will speak at the beginning of the event. Marvin is passionate about the need to provide debt support and to improve financial literacy across the city.
We know that as a church leader, you have a heart to reach the poor and vulnerable in your community with the hope that Jesus brings. This is also the mandate of CAP.
This Church Partnership Day will inspire you with practical ways to show God’s love for the hurting in your community and give you details of how to help people become debt free, find work, overcome addictions or gain vital life skills through one of CAP’s unique services.
There are already two CAP Debt Centres in Bristol – in Downend and Sea Mills – but it is recognised that debt support needs to extend to other parts of the city, and south Bristol in particular. As evidence of the high level of unmet need, CAP already receives regular phone calls for help from these areas where there is no coverage.
South Bristol Churches Partnership Day:
· Date: 4th October 2017
· Time: 10am – 3:30pm

We are really excited about the opportunity to meet with you and share further about the work of CAP. If you know any other church leaders who may also be interested in attending, please feel free to extend the invitation to them.
We look forward to seeing you there
Marvin Rees, Mayor of Bristol
