Prisons Week of Prayer
11 - 17th October 2020
Spurgeons is one of twenty faith-based organisations working in prisons who come together to plan this annual campaign, which starts on Prisons Sunday, the second Sunday in October. The aim is to raise awareness and encourage prayer for everyone affected by imprisonment and the criminal justice system. We take an active part in preparing the prayer resources, available from the Prisons Week of Prayer website.
United in Lockdown
The word ‘lockdown’ is everyday language in prisons. Since COVID-19 we have all become familiar with what it means and feels like. We may have a better understanding of what life can be like both inside and outside the prison walls for prisoners and their children and families, of the loneliness and difficulties of separation, of living with constant uncertainty and trying to stay hopeful and positive.
Spurgeons staff have had to find different ways of supporting families and children unable to visit their dads and relatives in prison, to try to keep a connection, so that they know that our help for all of them continues to be there – that they are not alone.
