CPO was started as a mission, a charity, by three graphic designers for the tobacco industry who were converted at a Billy Graham event, and wanted to devote their skills to this: to help churches help people encounter Christ. They were called to serve God through communications, print and design. The vision is still the same but in a digital age the need is greater than ever. With your help we can do more.
To point to Christ in public places, more than 19,000 new posters and 1,500 new banners were put up last year designed and produced by CPO.
“I’d never been to church, but felt drawn to it. I saw a poster saying ‘wherever you’re from, you’re welcome here’. That was enough to make me to go in. I realised I was welcome!” Ros, Brighton.
“Your ‘God is with us’ design proved a winner. One local family brought along their children because of the invitation we gave them. Keep up your brilliant work for Him!” Susan, London.
Last year more than 106,000 invitations and cards and more than 11,000 outreach booklets went out through churches to friends and neighbours, provided by CPO. We also trained churches in social media, provided websites, and equip through events, blog posts and subsidised professional design help. It is a challenge. We are committed to meeting all the needs of individual churches but this year will be left with a huge shortfall. Rising costs shouldn’t hamper the spread of the good news and so we are taking steps to address this. CPO is about evangelism through communications. We need your support to continue to enable churches to help people meet Jesus.
We also want to give fully subsidised resources to churches most in need through the Church Comms Improvement Fund. The opportunity is great, and we believe CPO has a unique role to play 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.
