We're still here for you...

The majority of our printed resources remain available to order but please be advised that we are unable to source some items at this time.

Orders placed through our webshop will continue to be fulfilled. If you have any questions or queries please send them to sales@cpo.org.uk and we will respond as soon as possible.

CPO's resources and publications are designed to help your church share the life-changing message of Jesus powerfully and effectively with your local communities.


 

Public Statement
3 August 2020
CPO IS NOW FULLY OPEN


This is the third Public Statement we have written during the Coronavirus pandemic and it marks the final stage in the Recovery Plan we have been implementing since early April.


In our previous ‘Public Statement’ to Charities and Church organisations at the beginning of June, the message was “our work for churches, church organisations and Christian charities is growing again. We’re here to help.” Many organisations were planning how to respond as ‘lockdown’ was eased and CPO was increasingly being asked to help to prepare for that.


Consequently, July saw an exceptional period of demand for our resources, more than doubling the volume of orders we received in July last year, and there is no sign of that abating at present. This is partly a result of the progressive rebuilding of the range of resources on our website. For instance, we are now offering a range of PPE and Social Distancing products and resources.


Over recent weeks, we have restructured CPO in open consultation with our staff and ended our involvement in the furlough scheme.


The restructure has made CPO even more customer/client focussed in our work and outreach, with the view to grow further. We are especially pleased to announce that Paul Arkinstall has been appointed Chief Partnership Officer and that every Client will have a dedicated Client Relationship Manager or Executive. In the next few days we also expect to announce the appointment of a Chief Creative Officer to lead our creative and design team and we ask for your prayerful support as these changes continue to be made.


We are delighted to be able to announce that: “CPO is open; and our work for churches, church organisations and Christian charities is growing rapidly. We’re here to help.”


For more information on the new structure, or to talk through your requirements, please contact Paul Arkinstall at paularkinstall@cpo.org.uk or call 01903 604349 / 07802 880 511
With our prayers for all our clients as you continue to work through these challenging times.

God bless you
