Happy Christmas from CPAS

'I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.' (John 8:12, TNIV)

Read a Christmas message from John Dunnett, CPAS general director, here.


Light has come into the world!

'I have come into the world as a light, so that no one who believes in me should stay in darkness.' (John 12:46, TNIV)

This Christmas, please support CPAS by donating to our ‘light of the world’ appeal. Your gift will allow us to enable more churches to help men, women and children discover the light of Jesus.

Find out how CPAS has enhanced the missional leadership of four people leading in different roles and contexts: Chris, Maria, Andrew and Alicia.

Please donate here today. Thank you.


Equipping leaders for mission

Making Mission Possible events continue to equip and enable local church leaders to help more people discover the good news of Jesus Christ.

Andy Dodwell attended a Leading Edge forum in November. He said: ‘Currently my role is evolving and it was extremely helpful to have some language and framework that are both godly and focused.’



Christmas resources from Church Leadership

Church Leadership offers creative, useful ideas and resources for services this Advent and Christmas and there are some free samples available to download.
