Oakwood Prison Ministry
If anyone feels they could contribute to the chaplaincy work at Oakwood Prison (at Featherstone, Wolverhampton) by collecting toiletries for the men, craft resources for the children's work in the visitor centre, or by donating rucksacks they no longer need for released prisoners to carry their clothes in, rather than the bin bag they are provided with, I would be so chuffed!
I would also welcome new volunteers who feel they could give a couple of hours a week just being alongside families in the visitor centre... it's such a wonderful opportunity just to be a Christian presence in a place that can feel harsh and alien to those visiting. You don't need to be an expert in anything... just willing to be there to make tea, listen, tidy-up, listen, water the plants, listen, draw daft pictures with children, listen, smile and listen.
I can't pay for your time... I can't even pay your expenses... but I can promise you will come alive as you serve the least of these.
