Prisons Week 2015...

Prisons Week will be marked at St Edmundsbury Cathedral, Bury St Edmunds at the 10 am service on Sunday 15 November.


The speaker is Claire Bonham, who until recently worked for Prison Fellowship in their Headquarters in London. Prison Fellowship seek, through prayer and practical care, to help, support and develop a Christian ministry to prisoners and their families through a network of volunteer members. They currently have over 2,000 members across England and Wales.


After the service there will be a chance to join and take part in a Q&A session in the Lecture Room with Claire. A ‘Prisoners’ Week’ began in 1975, and was created by a committee consisting of Prison Chaplains and other Christians involved in work with prisoners and their families. It was formed to encourage prayer within churches and the wider Christian community for the needs of prisoners. Over the years the movement has gained momentum and now has full ecumenical status, seeking to focus attention not only on the needs of prisoners but on all those involved in the field of prison care – prisoners’ families, victims of crime, prison staff and many volunteers.


Now called Prisons Week, its primary aim is to pray for and raise awareness of the needs of prisoners and their families, victims of offenders, prison staff and all those who care. More information is available at and
