Churches Relationship Manager

CPAS has been resourcing local churches for mission and evangelism since 1836.  CPAS has recently refreshed its vision and recalibrated the way it will support the local church in evangelism in the 2020’s. This has reconnected us to the passion for evangelism expressed in 1836 but allowed new ideas to rise to the surface, not least a commitment to working with new forms of local church and a new generation of leaders.  Through our patronage responsibilities, we are also involved in making clergy appointments every month of the year and in every Diocese of the Church of England.  Our leadership and training work has extensive reach with church leaders, lay and ordained.  We also run residentials and holidays for children and young people, including a rapidly expanding programme with Church of England primary schools.  All of this keeps us connected to churches and leaders in widely different contexts in villages, towns and cities across the UK and Ireland.


We’re looking for someone who is gifted at developing and deepening relationships with these churches and their leaders. You need to be someone who wants to grow their involvement with CPAS’ ministry and also be able to grow financial support for CPAS within this important group of supporters. Can you build on our existing relationships, foundations and links and establish new ones in order to grow the number of people reached through our ministry and to help increase both regular and one-off donations to CPAS enabling us to support our work in line with our refreshed vision and strategy?
