Rolleston Prison Teams

Lester and Jean White lead teams into Rolleston Prison twice a month on a Sunday night. This time includes a chapel service with a fellowship time to follow over coffee.
Training is provided as required. This is a positive and rewarding way of engaging with prisoners during their time on the inside.

Project Esther leads a team into Christchurch Women’s Prison once a month to take the chapel service with the support of the Prison Chaplain. Additionally this work involves: support at prison family days, providing practical support to inmates as needed, e.g. clothing, books, other resources, and supporting ex-inmates as they continue their journey back into the community. We also cover costs of counselling from time to time.
