From Andrew Kellett, Cairns Road Baptist Church
Two men were baptised this year through attending a weekly Bible Study in one of our local prisons led by a volunteer. Also a small team from the church have led the Sunday services once every two months. Men and women in prison are amazingly open to the gospel. They particularly need to know how to find forgiveness and hope.
There are 5 prisons in the WEBA area: Leyhill(open), Eastwood Park(women), Bristol(Horfield), Ashfield(Pucklechurch), Erlestoke(nr Devizes). You could ring the chaplain of your nearest prison and ask how you might be able to help.
Also there is a need to help prisoners find their place back in the community on release; for the Greater Bristol area contact www. sixty-one.org
