Creating Welcoming Churches

Creating Welcoming Churches for those leaving prison

How can the church fulfil the spiritual needs of those leaving prison and extend to them a warm welcome?

In partnership with 'The Welcome Directory', Learning Network Yorkshire Plus igave the opportunity to learn more about how we might welcome into our church those leaving prison.

Jesus spent a lot of time hanging about with people who are on the margins of society and He asks us specifically to love those we find difficult.

  • How might we be able to do that, and to do it safely?
  • What do people leaving prison need?
  • How might we offer not only support, but a loving faith community they can be welcomed into?
