CPAS enables churches to help every person hear and discover the good news of Jesus Christ, by equipping churches for evangelism through developing effective leadership.
For example, CPAS runs:
Ventures- Many of the young people go on their Broads Cruise each Easter.
Growing Leaders course- St John's runs this course and several of the church's members have participated. Find out more on the Growing Leaders page.

John and Gillian Robinson left the UK with their family for Bangkok in 2009 to work with the underprivileged, especially those in prisons.

The Place of Grace now has a UK based charity, which is separate from the Robinsons who are supported through Crosslinks.
