CPO was started by three designers who felt so strongly that churches should have better design that they sold their homes to set up a company and provide it. That desire has continued: to make professional design accessible to churches, in the belief that a creative God uses visual messages to change lives.
Every community responds to different styles. Our designs for churches now seek to be broad, with a mix of the traditional and contemporary, using different methods and artists. Our in-house design team based in Brighton have experience working with both corporate clients and well-known Christian charities and churches. Between them they cover a huge skill base, and share a passion for using their talents for God’s work.
We also offer full service design to charities and church groups. This includes:
- Branding and logo design
- Website and digital design
- Illustration services
- Print design – everything from leaflets to exhibition stands
- Magazine layout and design
We can offer a refresh of your existing designs, new concepts, or work with existing style guides. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know what you have in mind. We’re happy to have the conversation and see how we can serve you.
At CPO’s facility in Worthing we have decades of print experience. We have invested in state of the art digital presses, facilities for large format vinyl print, and a dedicated finishing team who can create unusual bespoke jobs, including die-cuts, folding and stitching.
We print customised resources to order – everything from business cards to laminated posters to large format vinyl banners, with multiple options for material and finishing.
Examples of recent promotional print work include T-shirts, mugs, caps, USB sticks, wristbands, even bespoke candle holders. We print high-quality folders, brochures, annual reports and prospectuses for churches, charities and schools.
Magazine and book printing is an integral part of CPO’s heritage, and part of how we serve the wider Church. In 2016 we printed over one million copies of The Servant Queen and the King she Serves, produced by HOPE, LICC and the Bible Society.
We regularly print magazines both for CPO (Inspire and Woman Alive), and for many partners including The Methodist Church, France Mission, Operation Agri, Plain Truth and the Church of England.
We print in quantities from one to one million – and everything in between. The developing online ‘print shop’ also enables people to upload their own print ready designs, view quotes and print direct.
We share your mission, and look to provide top quality print and a flexible, understanding service.

At CPO we are well aware of the breadth of communication vitally needed by churches and charities in today’s media-saturated world.

Our senior team have professional experience in fundraising, marketing and media, as well as leadership within local churches. CPO have produced fundraising copy, rebrands, press releases, new websites and full communications delivery on behalf of partners.
In 2017 BRF published a series of books on church communications with CPO, called ‘Reach Out’. These are designed to combine the missional with the practical, covering websites, social media, church from the outside and church on the inside. From vision to strategy to planning and a toolkit of resources, they are supported by a communications training website developed for UK churches at toolkit.cpo.org.uk.
