We praise God for the men who have given their lives to Jesus while in prison, and for those, who through our influence, and the Chapel Services, will give their lives to the Lord in the future, strengthening them for their return to the outside world.
We are helping inmates who have been in prison for 20, 30 and even 40 years. They admit they have been in dark places and need people and communities to believe in their desire to turn their lives around, and not focus on what they did all those years ago.
Who better to do this than the Church. Working with offenders is never popular, and the media often distorts the reality and complexity of many offenders’ lives and this makes supporting them even harder. Yet as Christians we know the power of grace and forgiveness, and the JOY that comes from a new life. We also know that Jesus spent a lot of time reaching out to the poor, the marginalised and the unloved of society. This is what New Beginnings and its team of Trustees and visitors is striving to do.
OUR AIM IS THAT PRISONERS IN OUR CARE NEVER RE-OFFEND AGAIN.
NB4U CIO seeks to befriend prisoners mainly from HMP Leyhill and mentor them on
their release. In supporting NB4U you will be helping us to:
- Visit prisoners on a monthly basis
- Visit ex-offenders regularly on their release
- Provide them with their essential basic needs both in prison and on their
