The Faith & Justice series is an in-prison and in-community Bible study series that consists of three programs designed to help incarcerated individuals grow spiritually and practically.
THE FORGIVENESS JOURNEY
Forgiveness is a hard concept to grasp and accept, particularly if you have done something that has left you with a deep sense of guilt or shame. This program focuses on God’s unconditional love and His offer to forgive everyone regardless of their past or what they have done or how far they are from Him. His mercy, grace and love for each person is greater than any guilt and comes first – before anything.
THE RE-ENTRY JOURNEY
This program centres around practical life skills that are Biblically based. It is written to reach a diverse audience regardless of their age, culture or education level. The program demonstrates a committed and careful use of Scripture and contains insights from a variety of disciplines.
THE SYCAMORE TREE
Our restorative justice program offers those who have caused harm to others through crime and those who have been harmed to gain a joint understanding of the impact of crime and proceed along the pathway to healing and transformation.
Everyone makes mistakes and needs love. A few of the women shared how they had cried out to Jesus in their time of need and how the Holy Spirit responded. We discussed how we are called to be ambassadors, share the love of Christ and the Gospel, tell how He has helped us so that we can help others.

We have seen a couple of prisoners experience transformation recently during The Prisoner’s Journey. One of them just broke out crying in the middle of a session, so the Chaplain took him into the office and ministered to him.
