1 in 3 adults doesn’t know a Christian, but 1 in 5 want to talk about Jesus.
In a digital age, there are more means of communicating than ever before.
Churches want to reach their communities – but often need practical help.
CPO help churches play their part in shining a light across the country for Christ, by making all the communications and outreach resources and training they need easily available.
We believe this can have a strategic impact on the churches and charities we support.
Churches get to change the way people perceive Christians and the church. We want to 'raise the bar' on communications for every church in every community. We want to see the Church grow and the gospel communicated clearly and relevantly so that lives are transformed: and giving the Church the right tools helps it to flourish. Your support and prayers enable this to happen.
CPO is a charity that only exists to serve the Church, to help God's people share the amazing good news in a way that changes lives. Although we sell resources to churches via this shop, these simply do not cover the full cost of providing them as cheaply, quickly and professionally as you need. The costs of production mean there is a growing gap. And there is far more we'd like to do:
Part of making sure we're fit for purpose and stewarding our funds is reviewing what we have. Our facility in Worthing which has served us wonderfully is now very tired and too big for our needs. So we're selling up and moving house! God has provided an idea new place locally which will stand us in good stead for serving churches into the future, but, like any moving, it can be a long and pricey process with twists and turns. We want to move at our quietest time of year so there's no disruption to our work. Long term this will release funds for ministry, but right now we need practical help with the moving cost.
We would love for our new premises to be somewhere we can welcome churches, print resources more efficiently and with higher quality than every before, and somewhere that engenders creativity, new thinking and new ways of working that benefit all of the thousands of churches we serve each year. A gift could mean:
We are so grateful for all God has given us - but we have learned that we need the help and support of others as we move into a new stage of helping every UK church with their communications in a digital age. We know we need those who care as much as us about church communication and outreach. And we know all the money goes directly to serving local churches as they reach out to their communities. Would you consider investing in this?
I declare that I wish all donations I have made to CPO in the last four years and all donations I make hereafter to be treated as Gift Aid donations.
This means that CPO may reclaim tax on my donations directly from HM Revenue & Customs.
I am a UK taxpayer and understand that if I pay less income tax and/or Capital Gains tax in a tax year than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all of my donations in that tax year
it is my responsibility to pay any difference.
Gift Aid is reclaimed by CPO from the tax you pay for the current tax year.
Please tell us who you are, so we can send you confirmation of, and thank you for, your donation.
If you'd prefer to remain anonymous, that's fine too. Just leave these details blank and Gift Aid unticked.
