Did you know there are four prisons in the Diocese of Guildford? They are HMP Send, HMP Downview, HMP Coldingley and HMP High Down. HMP & Young Offenders Bronzefield is just outside of the diocese.

Each of these prisons has a dedicated chaplain and a team of volunteers, supporting the  prisoners and prison staff. The videos below, filmed for Prisons Week 2016, give insight into the differing prayer needs at each location.

For prayer resources, please see the Prisons Week 2016 website.
