Prisons Sunday is now the second Sunday in October and Prisons Week continues throughout the week until the following Saturday. An ecumenical Prisons Week Committee was formed in 1975 to encourage Christians to focus their thoughts and prayers, upon prisoners and their families, victims of offenders, prison staff and all those working for prisoners and their families.
The Committee publishes an information and prayer leaflet which is distributed to all who are planned to lead worship on Prisons Sunday. You can visit the Prisons Week website on www.prisonsweek.org for additional materials including prayers, posters, worship resources and books.
