Prisons Week is a national initiative established over 40 years ago to encourage the Christian community to pray for the needs of those in and involved in prison. This year the theme is ‘What does freedom mean to you?’ and the week runs from 13-19 October with each day having a prayer focus related to prisons.
Joan MacInnes, the Prison Fellowship Co-ordinator for Norwich, said: “Every year, Prisons Week gives us an opportunity to pray for prisoners, their families; for the victims of crime and for all those involved in the work of our prisons.
Everyone will be most welcome.
