A message from the Governor of Bristol Prison

"The impact of the Christmas Gift project cannot be overstated, the vibrancy and hope felt across the prison ‘post the delivery’ was immense.  Many of the men were touched and surprised by the generosity."

"On behalf of everyone in Bristol, a massive thank you to everyone involved for their kindness and charity.  Your invaluable support has helped us to further develop a true sense of community and hope, that we desire for our prison."

Our Mission

He has sent me to bind up the broken-hearted,
to proclaim freedom for the captives
and release from darkness for the prisoners,
to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favour

Isaiah 61

  • Please pray for the many prison staff who will be working over Christmas.
