The ministry of the Church Periodical Club (CPC) is to provide books, magazines, tapes, videos and computer programs free to those who cannot otherwise obtain them. Several of our congregations have received grants to cover the cost of Prayer Books, Hymnals, etc. Individuals and congregations can be members of the CPC to help raise funds to support its mission. We have both a Provincial and Diocesan representative. Each year the Presiding Bishop designates one Sunday in the year (designates a Sunday, usually the first Sunday of May) for the observance of the work of spreading the Christian message through the Printed Word
