Making Mission Possible

CPAS enables churches to help every person hear and discover the good news of Jesus

Application process

We start a new programme every other year. Those interested need to apply and enter a discernment process which is explained below.

Application procedure

We invite those interested in Arrow to enter a discernment process, which includes an application procedure and references. Once applications are received, they are considered by a panel that meets to finalise the discernment process. Applicants are informed of their decision within a week of that date.

The process is thorough and the form detailed. Don't be put off by it, and don't leave it until the last minute! Rushed applications rarely serve the applicant well. You'll need to make time to complete it over several days.

Throughout the process we pray for those who apply.
