9 Christian Helpline/Prayerlines that work together -

Joining Together to Serve Others

CCPAS has for some time been considering changing its name to better represent the breadth of the work we do. After much consultation and work by our marketing team, we are changing to Thirtyone:eight which is a biblical reference in the book of Proverbs about the challenge to advocate for the vulnerable and voiceless.

We are now operating under this new name and logo. Our documentation and website is being changed at present and will be fully operational by some time in November.

New Members of CHA Always Welcome

Are you running a Christian based Helpline or Prayerline in the UK? Do you do this using the telephone, SMS, live web chat or other ways?

If so you would be welcome to join the CHA. It costs just £30/year.

The managers/co-ordinators of the lines meet 3 times a year in different locations to share and network with each other. A strong partnership has developed between memebers as a result that is of mutual benefit.

We also hold an annual day conference with a keynote speaker and exhibit at major events like Christian Resources Exhibition.
