There are more than 10 million people in prison around the world. Alpha's vision is that every inmate is given the opportunity to explore the Christian faith through Alpha. Across Europe, governments are increasingly requiring prisons to engage in the rehabilitation and reintegration of prisoners.
On June 16th 2017, at the Prison Ministry Conference, Prison Officers, Chaplains and churches from across Europe will be sharing best practice around working together towards rehabilitation inside prison and what can be done after leaving prison to reintegrate ex-offenders into society. Paul Cowley MBE, Revd. Emmy Wilson and Pete Jones will share about successful programs and strategies in prisons with ex-offenders in Poland, the UK and the Netherlands to reduce reoffending.
Please pray for:
- Every person attending to be envisioned and encouraged in how they can personally get involved and make a difference.
- Many strategic connections would be made linking people up who work in a similar fields or who share a passion for serving in this area.
- Each speaker to be effective in communicating their vision and message for why and how to work impactfully in and out of the prison system.
- Transformation in and through prisons across Europe through Alpha.
