New single commemorates CAP UK's 20th birthday
Christians Against Poverty UK is celebrating it's 20th birthday with a brand new single by musician Philippa Hanna.
CAP has seen 20,000 people a year lifted out of debt, with 1,000 finding jobs through CAP Jobs Club, and 1,000 decide to follow Jesus through the ministry.
The track You are loved was written after singer-songwriter Philippa experienced hardship herself.
She said: "I wrote this song to be an anthem to empower us as Christians to go out into the dark places and turn people's lives around.
"I know that debt can affect anybody. You feel powerless and afraid. I experienced anxiety and depression with it and it's hard to find work to pay off your debts when you can't face an interview without having a panic attack.
"It was my faith that helped me to put my life back together.
"When I started getting to know Jesus, I began to think differently. I felt his grace and unfailing love for me and I knew I could have a new life and a new start.
"I want this song to say: whatever the situation is, God can still move that mountain. That's what CAP does."
CAP are also asking supporters to mark their birthday by taking up the 20 for twentychallenge from 3 to 23 October.
20 for twenty asks people do something different for 20 days to raise money for CAP. Challenges include sleeping in your car, going veggie or drinking only water.
