Prison Fellowship exists to offer every UK prisoner access to support and prayer. Our two local prisons - HMP Norwich and HMP Bure (Coltishall) are prayed for regularly, and volunteers help run Bible Studies, Alpha courses, chapel services, and visit prisoners. Prison Fellowship run three major programmes: Sycamore Tree – a victim-awareness programme addressing restorative justice, exploring the impact on victims, offenders, and the community; Angel Tree - supporting prisoners’ families by raising funds to provide Christmas presents for their children, accompanied by a personal greeting from the parent for their child; and letter writing by volunteers enabling prisoners to feel valued and supported in custody. Over 150 trained volunteers write to prisoners. See www.prisonfellowship.org.uk for details.
Reflex, a ministry of British Youth for Christ, works with over 1600 young people in custody every year. It empowers them to break the cycle of offending. See www.reflex.org for details.
We also support PrisonHOPE
