Mentored for mission

Many in our churches are looking for help as they grapple with how to be a disciple or a leader in such a fast moving, rapidly changing world.

Christian mentoring provides an intentional way of engaging with God’s agenda.

Read about one person’s experience of being mentored, and find out about a new resource for equipping mentors in local churches.


Good news from Ventures

It’s been another great summer for Ventures and thousands of young people have experienced a life-changing holiday, made new friends and created lasting memories to take home – all while discovering more about Jesus Christ.

Read about some of the changed lives.


Autumn vocations events

Do you sense a call to full-time ministry? Got questions? Discerning God’s call can be a confusing process, so CPAS is providing four enlightening vocations events this autumn.
You and Ministry weekends have been running for over 45 years and have helped more than 10,000 people discover God’s purpose for their lives:

lifecall days are specifically for 16-25s and give younger people the opportunity to ask questions, look at what the Bible says about call, and meet younger leaders:

If you, or others you know, are considering a call to ordained or authorised ministry, attending a vocations event could be a pivotal next step.


CPAS resources for 10p

There are still many CPAS resources from the past two decades available for just 10p.

The Project series, including titles on Luke, James and Jonah, features eight sessions in each book for small groups with suggestions for prayer, worship and linked Sunday service ideas. And there are tools for leading young people’s groups in The Art of 11-14s and The Art of 14-18s.

Other titles include Single Issues with insights on how churches can relate better with single people, and there are children’s teaching resources like People Jesus Met and Bible Stuff, both for use with under 5s.

All these and more can be purchased through the CPAS online shop for 10p each (plus p&p).
