Christians Against Poverty (CAP)
We are thrilled to be a part of the Didcot and Wallingford Area CAP Debt Centre. The Debt Centre is a partnership between six local churches and Christians Against Poverty.
Christians Against Poverty is on a mission to release thousands of families from grinding poverty through expert debt counselling and community groups. By equipping and empowering local churches to reach out on their doorsteps, they are bringing hope to over 21,500 families every year.

The Fountain, Wallingford
The Fountain is both a bookshop and a community centre, based in the heart of Wallingford. We serve hot drinks and you will always find a warm welcome and the opportunity to chat or just sit quietly. If you are wanting prayer there is always someone available to pray with you and this is an important part of our ministry.
We offer a wide range of Bibles and other Christian books, especially children’s books. If the book you are looking for is not in stock we can order it in within a couple of days. We also have a large selection of second-hand books.
We stock CDs and have a good selection of new releases as well as worship compilations. We also have a good range of greetings cards, some with bible text but also lovely square blank cards.
You’ll find gifts for baptisms, christenings and confirmations, along with small gifts such as fridge magnets, coasters and jotter pads.
Kath and Tracey will be happy to advise you and take orders. If you cannot visit The Fountain in person, please call us to discuss what you are looking for.

Wallingford Street Pastors
