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.

Churches get creative with Remembrance 100 campaign

The Hope Together initiative of 100 Days of Peace and Hope leading up to Remembrance Sunday is gathering pace.

More than 1,000 people receive the thoughts and prayers each day, thousands more are following them on social media, and www.remembrance100.co.uk has been visited more than 44,500 times.

Moor Lane Methodist Church in Crosby is marking the 100 days by creating a display of 100 ceramic poppies in front of the church. The poppies have been crafted and painted by members of the congregation, each poppy representing one of the 100 days of prayer.

Every day Hitchin Churches Together add a hand-made dove of peace to the growing flock hanging in the grounds of Hitchin’s Friends (Quakers) Meeting House. And St John's, St Mary's, Emmanuel, St Ann's and St Aldhelm's Churches in Weymouth, Dorset, are planning a Remembrance exhibition using images from the giftbook Silence.

Download the prayers and reflections for 100 Days of Peace and Hope free, together with logos, images, PowerPoint slides and further information at www.remembrance100.co.uk.
