Around 100K children across England and Wales will be spending Christmas without their mum or dad because they are in prison. Pact has been supporting people in prison and their children and families for 125 years.

This very special event will take place at 7pm on Tuesday 5th December 2023 and you are warmly invited to join us, in solidarity with everyone affected by imprisonment.

Rt Rev Richard Moth, Liaison Bishop for Prisons, will be presiding at the service.

We are delighted to announce that Roger McGough will be reading his beautiful poetry at the Carol Service. Roger is one of Britain's best-loved poets, presenter of BBC Radio's Poetry Please, and a good friend to Pact. His poem Everything Touches brought hope to people inside as part of a Pact National Prison Radio programme during the pandemic.

At our Carol service, the choir of Sacred Heart High School, Hammersmith will lead us in song as we prepare for Christmas and bring prisoners and their families before the Lord in prayer. This is a great opportunity to hear Our Lady of Victories' fantastic Grand Organ being played too.

Stay and continue the conversation over refreshments in the Hall downstairs. We look forward to meeting you in person.

'I was in prison and you visited me.' Matthew 25:36

There is full disabled access for this event.
