CPAS has responsibility for nominating to over 500 benefices in the Church of England.
Working collaboratively with the church, the diocese and, where relevant, with other patrons, we seek to fill vacant parishes with incumbents who have a heart for the gospel, are committed to seeing people won for Christ and built up in the faith.

Helping evangelical clergy looking for a move, this register is shared with other evangelical patronage trusts and seen by a significant number of bishops and archdeacons.
The first of these, a series of three downloadable papers, provides help with considering, applying for and being interviewed for parish posts. Moving on from Curacy is especially designed for curates, and aims to demystify the appointments process, clergy 'lists', parish profiles and interview questions.
