With your help, people in prison are transforming their lives every day.
Yes, I will make a donation.
Your gift will help us continue to support men and women in prison through this crisis, and emerge stronger and ready to reach even more people in Christ’s name. Thank you!
As prisons open their gates after the Covid-19 pandemic, we are beginning to receive requests for Sycamore Tree to start up again.
Rev Jo Davies, a chaplain in London, is delighted that Sycamore Tree is running again in her prison. She says,
“Sycamore Tree is transformational! I am always impressed by the speed with which men become aware of their victims and recognise the impact of their crimes. Such is the positive reaction to the course that it was the first activity we were allowed to reintroduce in our prison after the complete lockdown during Covid-19. Our entire Senior Management Team recognised that it was essential to allow Sycamore Tree to run again. They prioritised making it happen because it prevents reoffending and transforms lives—not only of people inside prison but also of possible future victims on the outside.”
And so, as prisons start to open up again, we face a difficult prospect. With Sycamore Tree restarting in many prisons, along with continuing Prayer Line, Angel Tree and all our other programmes, we are struggling to find all of the resources we need to fund the fullness of our mission.
We are most grateful for all you are already doing to support the future of our ministry. At this time of transition, please could you prayerfully consider making an additional gift today?
What you are investing is truly transformational for people in our prisons. Thank you!
