DEBT WORRIES? DO COME ALONG AND SEE IF WE CAN HELP.

£1 million of debt repayments are now made through CAP every month.

SOME FACTS AND FIGURES ABOUT UK DEBT

The amount we owe personally in the UK is growing by £1 million every seven minutes and now stands at £1.45 trillion pounds. This means that we owe an extra £300 million every day.

Today, we will pay £260 million in interest.

A person in the UK will be declared bankrupt every 4 minutes.

According to uSwitch.com, 6.8 million UK households are in debt to their energy supplier. Over a quarter (26%) of energy customers were 'in the red' on their last energy bill and two million customers are now on debt repayment programmes to energy supplier.

YOU HAVE OUR ATTENTION LORD
A prayer by Max Lucado - October 2008

Our friends lost their house
The co-worker lost her job
The couple next door lost their retirement
It seems that everyone is losing their footing

This scares us. This bailout with billions.
These rumblings of depression.
These headlines: ominous, thunderous -
“Going Broke!” “Going Down!” “Going Under!” “What's Next?”

What is next?

We’re listening. And we’re admitting: You were right.

You told us this would happen.
You shot straight about loving stuff and worshipping money.
Greed will break your heart, You warned.
Money will love you and leave you.
Don’t put your hope in riches that are so uncertain.

You were right. Money is a fickle lover and we just got dumped.

We were wrong to spend what we didn’t have.
Wrong to neglect prayer and ignore the poor.
Wrong to think we ever earned a dime. We didn’t. You gave it. And now, tell us Father, are You taking it?

We’re listening. And we’re praying.
Could you make something good out of this mess?

Of course You can. You always have.
You led slaves out of slavery,
Built temples out of ruins,
Turned stormy waves into a glassy pond and water into sweet wine.
This disorder awaits your order. So do we.

Through Christ,
Amen

God will always give what is right to His people who cry to Him night and day, and He will not be slow to answer them. (Luke 18:7 NCV)
