Prisons and Enterprise - The Message | Christian Prison Work

Prisons and Enterprise


The Message is a UK Christian charity helping prisoners to find Jesus through Christian prison work and Christian youth resources.

Our teams help people find Jesus in prison and youth offenders’ institutions, but our work doesn’t stop at the prison gates.

On release we continue working with ex-offenders, helping them breaking free of the cycle of offending for good. Through our enterprise work we provide individuals with full-time jobs and training in one of our nine businesses together with safe, local accommodation and support they need. Discipleship is at the heart of everything we do, helping each of our team members deepen their faith and love for God.

And it works. Nationally, 28.6% of adults and 40.4% of juveniles re-offend within 12 months, at the Message Enterprise Centre this figure is just 2%. Lives are being transformed for good.
