'As a church, we have used the Mentoring Matters packs to train approximately 30 mentors, and have been able to subsequently link almost all of them up with one or more mentees.' - Chris and Ginny

Henry Curran


'Arrow has been a truly ministry-saving experience. The combination of a loving community, excellent Bible teaching and great wisdom from experienced leaders enabled me to find a fresh intimacy with God and learn skills and habits that have transformed my ministry.' - Henry

Jo Stephens


'It's been an amazing couple of years. We had a vision of making more outreach happen, so we needed to equip people to make this a reality. Thanks to Growing Leaders we've started new activities including a youth club, which attracts 25 young people every fortnight.' Jo

Ashdown Forest


'Ashdown Forest Venture has been running for 30 years now, which is a testimony to God's faithfulness. It is wonderful to know that he is working through us as we honour him through all the conversations and activities.' - Naomi

Ray Smith


'I have now celebrated just over 60 years in the ministry. Whilst in training, as a curate, and when I became an incumbent, there was always the generosity of CPAS providing support.' - Ray

Jo Smith


'Sometimes I'll see my young people really understand something at a heart level for the first time during the Venture. Something about being away together and getting so much extra input can really help things to click into place.' - Jo

Chris Martin


'It's early days, but the 'Servants and stewards' course has already helped me view PCC meetings as kingdom-building opportunities, with each agenda item now linked to the Mission Action Plan so we know the reason we're talking about things.' - Chris
