In order to reflect how most churches work in their neighbourhoods, the Christian Peoples Alliance is built as a party from the bottom up. Maximum freedom within the CPA Constitution is given to activists to organise themselves, campaign on local issues, and adopt local candidates. Once a constituency party is formed and has been running for a while, then it may affiliate to the national party. At the UK level, the CPA is a federal party for Great Britain.
Nationally, the CPA has a Leader, a President, and an Executive and Federal Council.
