CAP DEBT CENTRE TO OPEN IN 2021 :

For the past 2 years Chelmsford supporters of Christians Against Poverty have been looking into the feasibility of setting up a debt management centre which given the economic fall out from the pandemic is likely to be more urgently needed than ever. Recent discussions taking place have involved finalising plans to launch the Centre in April/May 2021 with a Debt Manager soon to be appointed to run the Centre initially online.

The local CAP support team would welcome prayers of support from local Churches in this task. In time volunteers will also be needed to act as befrienders and coaches for the Centre clients facing financial difficulty. At present donations of money support would also be very welcome being sent to http://www.give.net/ChelmsfordCAPDebtCentre. Please direct other offers of help or queries about the Centre to Simon Medcroft. Senior Pastor via email CAP@danburymission.org.uk.

Blessings to All

Tony Bender

Trinity Methodist Eco Policy - Full Document Here

Trinity Methodist Church in Chelmsford, is divesting from fossil fuels following a vote at the October Church Council.  In taking this bold step, Trinity joins with 6 other Methodist Churches as well as the national United Reformed Church and Quakers in Britain.

‘As a global family we face a climate emergency and an emergency requires an urgent response. Like the good Samaritan we cannot ignore a suffering planet or continue investing in fossil fuels which are causing the pain.’  Rev Mark Pengelly Minister

Equality and Diversity Issues


I have recently been appointed EDI Officer for the district, starting from September.
The role involves helping circuits and churches to engage in good practice in matters
of equality and Diversity, which encompasses, but is not restricted to, disability, race,
and gender issues. As such, I will be asking circuits and churches to consider how they
approach those issues, and what systems are in place to ensure equality and fairness
across all of its platforms, including worship, recruitment, and engaging with users of
their buildings.
This role is of course, new to me, and I have yet to map out exactly what shape it
takes, but I am excited and looking forward to working with churches in this way. One
way in which you can help, is by responding to any information that is circulated by
me, as initially, I will be asking churches to take part in a survey. It is important to
note, also, that equality is the responsibility of all of us, as children of God, and
therefore, the work cannot be done by one person only, so I'm looking forward to
cooperating with you in this task.
Every Blessing
Deacon Ramona Samuel
