Prisons Week this year is 13-19th October and a number of resources are available to help you support the work going on in our four local prisons.
A lectionary Collect is available for Sunday 13th October for a Prisons Week Collect:
Lord, you offer freedom to all people.
We pray for those in prison.
Break the bonds of fear and isolation that exist.
Support with your love prisoners and their families and friends,
prison staff and all who care.
Heal those who have been wounded by the activities
of others, especially the victims of crime.
Help us to forgive one another.
To act justly, love mercy and walk humbly together with Christ
in His strength and in His Spirit, now and every day. Amen
