Holidays are coming

Summer may seem a long way off with the weather that has blighted the country in recent weeks, but the prospect of the 2014 Ventures season will hopefully help turn your mind to drier, summer and warmer times ahead.

Ventures are fun, safe and life-changing holidays for 8-18s, where children and young people explore the Bible, learn more about Jesus and do loads of great activities together.

If you know any parents, youth workers or teenagers who might be interested, they can search more than 80 holidays and request more information from the Ventures team at

CPAS included in new PrayerMate app

CPAS is one of several mission agencies included in a free new app to help you pray. PrayerMate brings together personal prayer points and regular updates and prayer letters from mission agencies, charities and churches along with prayers from the Bible and devotional reflections.

A regular 'Time to pray?' reminder can be set, and you can choose how many prayer points appear each day and add new items every time you say 'I'll pray for you'. Get PrayerMate.

If you prefer a more traditional prompt to pray, sign up for our free quarterly Prayer Diary at We also post daily prayer points on Twitter (@CPASnews).


Promoting CPAS in your church

As a charity we rely on many of our supporters who are fantastic advocates for our work in local churches across the length and breadth of the UK and Republic of Ireland.

If your church doesn't already support us with prayers or donations, perhaps you could be the spark that generates a new partnership in mission as we seek to increase our work enabling churches to help every person hear and discover the good news of Jesus.

If you’re able to help in this way then please have a look at for the various promotional materials which we can provide for display in your church, including posters, presentations and leaflets, as well as the option to receive extra copies of Catalyst and Prayer Diary.
