CPO is temporarily closed due to the coronavirus pandemic. 

For over half a century, CPO has stood alongside churches and Christian organisations to help them reach those beyond their doors. The Church is currently being required to preach God’s message to our nation in new ways. At CPO, we believe that this is sowing the seeds of a huge new opportunity: to embrace a church beyond walls. Communications will play a foundational role in that. We’ve collaborated on a resource to support you as you adapt to this new landscape – covid.churcheshandbook.co.uk. Please also sign up to our Reach email if you haven’t already, so we can let you know when we are up and running again.

The book – published to mark The Queen's 90th birthday, and featured on a recent BBC Songs of Praise – is a joint enterprise between Bible Society, HOPE and the London Institute for Contemporary Christianity (LICC), with Inspire's publisher CPO handling orders, printing and postage of orders.

The richly illustrated 64-page book, put together by Mark Greene (LICC) and Catherine Butcher (HOPE), uses the Queen’s own words to describe her faith in God, and explores and celebrates the place of Her Majesty’s Christian belief.

Bible Society’s Interim Chief Executive, Paul Woolley, said: "We are delighted by the way the demand keeps growing and the way in which people are using the book in their neighbourhoods."

Churches across the country are gearing up for special services, street parties and a range of events to mark the occasion, with local and national events planned for 12-15 May, and in early to mid-June, culminating in a massive street party for 10,000 in The Mall on 12 June.

Both CPO and Scripture Union have additional resources available to support these events.
