We are pleased to publish the 2018 edition of our resource booklet for Prisons Week, which this year is to be marked from 14th until 21st October, thus allowing two Sundays and all the week-days to bring the subject of congregations. For booklet please click CTiW Prison week booklet 2018

In recent years more churches in central London, of all denominations  have devised interesting and effective ways of marking Prisons Week both during services and in post-worship discussions and lectures.  We know, for instance that several churches have reprinted the Quiz on Orders of Services and used this as the basis for discussions ( new Quiz pages 20&21)

Prisons Mission volunteers are ready and willing to attend or advise about special services.  The booklet also includes a list of dozens of other organisations who are active in this field and can provide useful information for churches.(pages 24&25)

The crisis in British prisons, Minister Rory Stewart’s identification of “the ten worst jails”, and the “re-nationalisation” of HMP Birmingham, have heightened public awareness of the subject.  Prisons Week is a good opportunity to consider these very grave issues carefully.  We hope you will find the new booklet helpful for this purpose.
