The Prison Ministry Conference

We invite you
to make a difference

Want to learn more about supporting and caring for ex-offenders? Or simply want to make a difference in prisons? Join us at this years Prison Ministry Conference as we network, discover and explore the role you and your church can have in the journey of those affected by the prison system.

We're excited to hear from a wide range of voices in the criminal justice system and to look at how we can all support the journey from prisoners to ex-offenders, and are excited to launch our speaker line-up –– “The future can be different. There is hope. There is life.”
