'We have loved every minute of being part of CPAS ventures. Becky became a Christian on a CPAS Venture, and knows the impact they can have on a child. One parent even commented on how much their child had grown up in one week.' - Gareth
'Ventures have been part of my life since I was 11 years old, when I went to a camp with my sister for the first time. I loved it so much that I went back every year, and grew so much in my faith through that time.' - Christina
'There are so many things I love about Falcon camps... The joy of sharing the gospel with youngsters who may have never heard it before. Seeing the change it makes in some of their lives whilst they're on camp. Hearing them laugh. Seeing them grow in confidence during the week, but also becoming 'children' again and enjoying the daft things of camp.' - Sue
'The best thing about volunteering for Ventures and Falcons is seeing God at work in the lives of the young people and leaders who come. God comes close and shows people what he is like and what it means to follow in the way of his Son Jesus Christ.' - Sam and Claire
'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
'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
'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 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
'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
'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
'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
