For church leaders

We hope this page will soon be full of resources from and for church leaders. Have you got resources you can share with other church leaders who want to encourage their congregations to think about, pray for and get engaged with prisons? Perhaps a talk you’ve given, a sermon you’ve preached, an event you’ve held. Please sent it, or a link to it to We will check it before we post it. Thank you
