Working with Prisoners and Ex Offenders

“I was in prison and you visited me” – Jesus

We are passionate about supporting individuals who are in prison and those that have been released. We believe that God has made it clear that spending ourselves on behalf of those that are marginalised and disadvantaged is exactly what he wants of us. We partner with organisations that disciple prisoners in their Christian faith in Aberdeen and Peterhead prisons, and also those that support prisoners integrate into community on release.

As a church we are very keen to offer support to prisoners as they are released to Aberdeen. It has been our experience with many of the men and women we have supported that they have felt scared to try to make change in their life. They have maybe said or tried on a number of occasions in the past and have re-offended and have, as a result, felt they have let their families and themselves down. Often it can be easier for them to just accept that they can never change so that they may as well just stay the way they are.

We believe that change is possible!

At City Church we are wholeheartedly committed to supporting individuals in this change process and to helping those who have lost hope to reconsider that change is possible. For more information we partner with please click on the links below.
