Prisons - The Message

Prisons


Around 92,400 men, women and teenagers across the UK are currently serving prison sentences. With many of them finding themselves at the lowest point in their lives they need to hear about the hope Jesus offers them.

Day in, day out for the last 15 years, our Message in Prisons teams have been going into prisons sharing the good news of Jesus in word and deed.

Whilst sharing the gospel is at the heart of what the team do, this isn’t just through chapel services and Bible study groups.

Peacemaker courses teach individuals the skills they need to help them resolve conflict and manage their emotions; mentoring programmes equip them for life outside of prison and music classes provide a way that relationships can be built with prisoners.

Today we’re working in prisons throughout England and in Wales, and God is moving in prisons. Lives are being transformed forever as people find the hope and love Jesus offers.

‘I’m unrecognisable from the guy I was, Jesus’ love has transformed my life.’
