'...I was in prison and you came to visit me.'
Matthew 25:36 - Holy Bible, New International Version
At St John's we want to make sure we are a place that welcomes those who for many reasons find themselves in prison and need to find a church home on release. To that end we are registered with The Welcome Directory . People who have formerly been in prison play an active and valuable part in the life of St John's.
We also send teams into north west prisons, under the leadership of our Associate Evangelists Keith & Jenny Raby. Our aim is to support prison chaplaincy teams by sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ, that sins can be forgiven freely, and transformation and new life can flow forth as a result.
