During Prisons Week (9th - 15th October) Capital Mass will be raising the profile of Christian Ministries who offer support to offenders currently serving time, or ex-offenders as they seek to reintegrate into their community.
Further details about the evening will be made public in September, we simply wanted to get the date in your diary.
Who is the evening for?
All who have an interest to support or participate in ministries to offenders or ex-offenders. Churches as they seek to offer a restorative welcome to those leaving prison. For those who want to know how best they can pray and support ministries who work behind the prison doors.
What will the evening be about?
The evening will comprise of a key note speaker unpacking the theological drivers which lead the church to minister to prisoners and ex-offenders. There will be a large market place area where you can connect with the organisations below; it's an opportunity to hear about their work and how you could get involved.
The market place will be split into 2 areas: 1 with the organisations ministering inside the prison doors and 1 area with the organisations who minister outside the prison doors. In each area before the networking begins collectively the organisations will speak about life in or life out of prison. This we hope will give a fuller picture.
The evening will then end with a time of collective prayer as we The Church come together to pray for this vital work and our role in it.
Does that sounds like an evening for you? Then please grab a free ticket and we look forward to meeting you on the 10th October.
