Would you believe me if I told you that the BBC is dedicating an entire hour of prime time TV to share stories of the Church bringing hope to some of the poorest people in the UK?
I can’t quite believe it (see my reaction here!), but that is exactly what is about to happen. On Friday 5 October, at 9pm, Christians Against Poverty (CAP) and some of our 600 partner churches are the subject of the BBC2 documentary The Debt Saviours. The programme profiles the work of the UK Church caring the poor and rescuing people from debt across the UK.
Can you imagine what God will do as over two million people from local communities including yours witness this positive expression of faith, possibly for the first time? Can you imagine how Holly or Gareth’s stories (you’ll meet them soon) could demonstrate to people the real hope and community that can be found in Christ and his Church?
On Sunday 30 September, will your church stand with us in prayer for this opportunity?
Don’t miss this unique chance to join with thousands of churches across the country, believing that God can use this programme for his glory.
Yours in Christ
