For the upcoming Prisoners' Sunday on October 14, 2018, Pact calls on individuals and churches in the Christian community to go beyond, and remember in prayer all those affected by imprisonment. Marking Pact’s 120th Anniversary, this year’s campaign, which is sponsored by CCLA, is an opportunity for making great change.

We are asked to open our hearts to and include in our prayers those who are overlooked and ignored – not just those in prison, but also their families, children and broader communities, the prison officers and other members of the justice system, and victims of crime. Through prayer and raising awareness, together we can help people to make a fresh start.

There are plenty of ways that you can help make a difference this Prisoners’ Sunday. You can make a donation to Pact and help us to continue our work supporting prisoners and their families.

You can print and share copies of our Prisoners’ Sunday poster, booklet and flyer, or ask us to speak at your local church. There are also plenty of volunteering opportunities available at Pact across England and Wales working in prisons and in the community.

Over the past weeks all churches in England and Wales will have received their Prisoners' Sunday packs complete with freepost, Gift Aid donation envelopes - so if you see these packs in your church, please do put up a poster and spread the word! If you would like to hold a collection to raise money for Pact you can send us the money you have raised via cheque, payable to Pact at 29 Peckham Road, London, SE5 8UA. 

If you would like any more information or would like to arrange for a Pact representative to speak with your congregation about our work, contact our team at [email protected].

If your business or organisation would like be an official sponsor for Pact, or you would like to discuss the different ways your company can get involved, you can get in touch with our Supporter Relations team on [email protected].

Pact works to ensure every prisoner and their families receive the support and understanding they deserve. Together, we can make it so.
