Bringing faith to prisons

The Mission of Liverpool Alpha in Prisons Project is:
  1. to promote the delivery of Alpha Courses in the five Prisons within Liverpool Diocese
  2. to promote the means by which those who have come to faith in the Lord Jesus during their time in custody, will be provided with a link to a local Church or Christian Fellowship within the Diocese.
Rev John Sephton is leading the development of Liverpool Alpha in Prisons Project. The aim is to deliver Alpha and support other Christian activity in the five Merseyside Prisons:
Convinced that the success of this ministry rests in having groups of people praying for the different Prisons and for opportunities to work with local Chaplaincy teams to develop, John already has a prayer group which currently meets every six weeks and a prayer letter is to be published soon – if you would like to have more information about praying for the Liverpool Alpha in Prisons Project, please click here.

A team of 12 people, some having assisted with the delivery of Alpha at HMP Risley, are seeking clearance* to volunteer elsewhere and John is looking for others to help deliver Alpha in the other Merseyside Prisons. If you would like to find out more about what is involved, please click here.

*Anyone wishing to volunteer or work within the Prison service has to be security cleared. This process can take some time.
