FEBRUARY MISSION FOCUS
Church Pastoral Aid Society
We have already heard about the role of CPAS, our Patrons, as they guide us through the processes of appointing a new Vicar but this is only one aspect of their work.
One of their main focuses is YOUTH and in normal times they would be organising a programme of Youth Camps.
VENTURES which are fun-filled holidays that offer children and young people the opportunity to make great friends, take part in incredible activities and to explore life with Jesus.
FALCONS which are subsidised holidays designed to suit children and young people who may face disadvantage or difficult circumstances in their daily lives, and
SCHOOL VENTURES which give pupils at Church of England Primary Schools the chance to investigate the core concepts of the Christian faith for themselves.
In non-Covid years camps are held throughout the summer in venues nationwide but different plans may have to be made this year.
Another focus is EQUIPPING CHURCH LEADERS. CPAS offer training events and resources with advice and support on all aspects of leadership to encourage church growth and outreach.
