Offering the Bible to the World
Acts chapter 2 describes how the disciples, filled with the Holy Spirit at Pentecost, were able to be understood in their own languages by the visitors to Jerusalem for the Jewish feast. Years of hard work, supported by the Bible Society, have seen the translation of the bible into 700 languages which now means that eighty percent of the World’s population, some 5.7 billion people, have access to Scripture in their own language. The work continues with the Bible Society and its international Bible Society colleagues setting a target of a further 1,200 translations over the next two decades.
Making Mission Possible
CPAS works with churches mainly in the UK and Republic of Ireland in support of evangelism. Their work covers young people through Ventures and Falcons, developing parish missional leadership and acting as Patrons to many parishes including ours. For Summer 2020 they had seventy-seven residential events scheduled across the country for children and young people from eight to eighteen. These have had to be cancelled with non-recoverable losses of over £150,000. On a positive note they have developed Virtual Ventures which have allowed their members to interact online by squeezing fun, faith and fellowship through the Internet
