Prisons Week 2021 – 10th-16th October

We are delighted to be one of the sponsoring organisations that have developed the resources for this year’s Prisons Week Campaign. Join with chaplains, serving prisoners, police officers, victims of crime, prison leavers, family members and communities in this week of prayer for all those affected by prison.

The campaign is built around the theme of ‘Respair’ – an old English word which means ‘the return of hope after a period of despair’.  This year the week of prayer follows a tradition of lament, which encourages a journey from a dark place of pain, suffering, fear, or sorrow to somewhere that the light can get in.
