Sharpen discipleship and leadership in your church

Mentoring Matters is a new CPAS resource released this month, with everything you need to start a church-based mentoring network.

Many in our churches are looking for help as they grapple with how to be a disciple and leader in such a fast moving, rapidly changing world. A mentoring relationship provides an intentional way of engaging with God’s agenda.

Discover more and read the mentoring experiences of Malcolm, Karen and Chris.


Arrow applications open

Applications are now open for the next Arrow Leadership Programme, which equips influential leaders aged 25-40 for a lifetime of highly effective missional leadership.

Asa Humphreys finished Arrow in 2007 and is now a lay chaplain in two secondary schools in Salisbury, with a ministry of listening, serving and responding to needs.

‘I’ve had the best training there is, and now I know what I’m capable of – what I do is scary, unusual and new but now I’m able to do it. The impact Arrow has made has been incalculable. The quality of the training, and the confidence I was given that I was gifted and called by God were invaluable.’

Further information about Arrow and application forms are available from our website.


Praying for CPAS this autumn

This autumn sees the launch of two new CPAS initiatives as we look to the future, seeking to fulfil the calling God has given us to ‘take the gospel to every person’s door’ in these financially and spiritually challenging times.

Please join with us in prayer for the new Mentoring Matters resource and associates scheme, as well as the continuing ministry of Growing Leaders, the Arrow Leadership Programme, Leading Edge and our vocations work with adults and young people.

Find out more information, with guidance for your prayers.

His invitation as the sole UK-based guest speaker for this series of events recognises our significant contribution in the area of leadership development.
