Church Pastoral Aid Society

The Church Pastoral Aid Society (CPAS) is an Anglican evangelical mission agency. It was founded in 1836.[1]

Work of the Society

The CPAS works with churches across Ireland and the United Kingdom. Its aim is to "enable churches to help every person hear and discover the good news of Jesus". Its activities include the Growing Leaders suite of resources, the Arrow Leadership Programme, weekends, and a range of events and resources for youth and children’s leaders.

CPAS is responsible for Ventures and Falcon Camps, which are holidays for 8-18s. Falcon Camps are subsidised holidays for young people who might not otherwise be able to go on holiday. CPAS also has responsibility (sole or shared) for 512 patronages of Anglican churches up and down the country, and seeks to fill vacant incumbency posts with evangelical leaders.

There is a head office team who develop and deliver tools, training and resources for churches. The general director is Rev John Dunnett.

Their records are held at the University of Birmingham Special Collections.
