undefinedThe Rt Revd Donald Allister, Bishop of Peterborough, has become a vice-president of the Church Pastoral Aid Society (CPAS) - the Anglican evangelical mission agency. Bishop Donald Archdeacon of Chester from 2002 to 2010 accepted the CPAS trustees' invitation to the role, which involves informing, advising and encouraging the organisation in its ministry of enabling local churches to help every person in the UK and Republic of Ireland discover the good news of Jesus.

Bishop Donald has served as a mentor on the CPAS Arrow Leadership Programme for influential younger church leaders, and is a member of the Evangelical Group at General Synod (EGGS), which is chaired by CPAS general director John Dunnett.

John Dunnett said: “We are very pleased to welcome Bishop Donald to CPAS. He has substantial first-hand experience of parish ministry, is respected for his orthodox biblical teaching and is committed to mission. CPAS is all about resourcing local churches to more effectively share the gospel, so we’re delighted to have him on board.’

Bishop Donald joins the five other CPAS vice-presidents, the Rt Revd Graham Cray, the Rt Revd Pete Broadbent, the Revd Canon Anne Dyer, the Rt Revd Wallace Benn and the Rt Revd James Newcome. The president of CPAS is the Rt Revd Mike Hill, Bishop of Bristol.
