Prisons Week 2022
Prisons Week is an annual event to inspire and empower individuals and churches, to pray for the needs of all those affected by prisons: prisoners and their families, victims of crime and their communities, those working in the criminal justice system and the many people who are involved in caring for those affected by crime on the inside and outside of our prisons.
In 2022, it takes place from Sunday 9th October to Saturday 15th October. This year’s theme is: What are you thankful for?
