Part of our commitment to following Jesus means reaching out to all of those in need – including those in prison. Matthew 25v36: “I was in prison, and you visited me” – Jesus clearly put a high value on caring for prisoners.
Grace Church is actively involved with the Chaplaincy team at HMP Ford where we run a weekly life group, quarterly Sunday evening services and annual Alpha and Discipleship Explored courses.
I was in prison,
and you visited me
Our aim is to show the love of Jesus to the prisoners who attend, to help them understand the gospel and to help encourage those who already have a faith. Prisoners who attend are a mix of those who are still exploring Christianity, those who have come to faith whilst in prison and those who had a faith in Jesus before they offended.
We also have a growing ministry serving and supporting men as they are released from Ford Prison and become part of Grace Church and local communities.
Ford Prison is a Category D (Open Prison) for adult men.
