Help a prisoner find freedom in Jesus

Can you help someone like Jay find Jesus?

Just one in five people who start a journey of faith in prison will continue it when they’re released

Jay’s story

"I repented and was forgiven. I found freedom."

Growing up in north London, my father wasn’t around and my mum struggled. Things started to go in the wrong direction when I fell in with a bad crowd.  I felt misunderstood and angry.

I went on a downward spiral of criminality, which eventually put me in prison. It was hard! There’s a lot of violence and it can kick off at the click of a finger, so I was paranoid a lot of the time.

But it was there I met LCM’s prisons and resettlement team at the chapel and for the first time, I started to take my faith seriously.

There, in Pentonville Prison, I repented and was forgiven. I found freedom.

Today, your gift can help someone like me find freedom in Jesus.

How does LCM support prisoners?

The Prison and Resettlement team go into prisons alongside volunteers from churches to share the word of God with prisoners. This is through different courses, fellowship and dispel groups as well as the Sunday morning chapel service.

“Many think that visiting people in prison is a waste of time. Nothing could be further from the truth. As friendships and trust are built, so are opportunities to share the gospel, pray, and talk through matters of faith. At some point, most people will leave prison, and when they do, we want them to lead transformed lives”

Luke Carson, Team Leader, Prison & Resettlement Team

“We have the opportunity to share the free gift of grace with people in prison, to bring the light of Jesus into a very dark place. They need the hope of the gospel. I’d encourage any church local to a prison to think about how they can support.”

Olly Sherwood, London City Missionary

The team also support people when they get released from prison through a discipleship group that meets every week for people who have left prison. They also help ex-prisoners to find a church and settle in by working with local churches.

After Jay was released, he was referred to LCM’s short-term accommodation, Corner House, where he received a bed, care, and love.

I might have struggled in faith, but the Bible studies with Olly and the Corner House team kept my focus on Jesus. I was nervous about going to church but Christians trained by LCM to support former prisoners welcomed me into their fellowship with open arms.”
