Prison Ministry


 

 

 

 

 

“I was in prison and you came to visit me … I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me” - Matthew 25:36, 40

We believe in a God of hope and transformation, a God whose heart is to set the captives free

As a church we want to change the fact that 45% of adults are reconvicted within one year of leaving prison; that the prison population in England and Wales is over 85,000 and that over the last two years, a prisoner in England and Wales has taken their own life every four days.

One Church has an active Prison Ministry which involves the church supporting two of our local prisons through running Alpha courses and Sunday services.

“For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink” - Matthew 25:35

ONE CHURCH IS PART OF THE RESPONSE TO FOOD POVERTY IN THE UK, WHERE 13 MILLION PEOPLE LIVE BELOW THE POVERTY LINE

We regularly collect and deliver food donations to support our local Foodbank, promoting the work and partnering on events. There is a drop-off point for the Norwich Foodbank in the foyer area of The Hewett Academy every Sunday.

The Foodbank gives three days of emergency food to individuals and families in crisis. Local care professionals in the Norwich area refer people using a food voucher. At the Foodbank Centre clients exchange their voucher for food supplies; they also receive a cup of coffee, a listening ear and signposting to other professionals who can help them out of their crisis.

The Norwich Foodbank would appreciate the following items to be donated:

Fruit Juice (long life carton)         
Instant Coffee (small jar)
Instant Custard (packets)

Milk (UHT long life)
