Power of Ten

Power of Ten by Gethin Russell-Jones (2013)New book shows how Christian collaborations are changing the face of Wales

This book tells the stories of ten partnerships between “compassion ministries” and local churches to serve their local communities. If you want to see your church reach out effectively to people living around it, this book will give you some great ideas to take that vision forward.

Prospects: How we can help you?

Prospects... Access to Life (logo)Prospects is a Christian organisation which enables and values people with learning disabilities to live their lives to the full.

Caring can be fun but exhausting.  As your child reaches adolescence you are aware that school and other children services will come to an end which may add to your worries.  Maybe you have organised all your adult child’s activities for years not knowing that you can have help. You may want some advice regarding church inclusion and bringing your child to faith.

Prison Fellowship sharing God’s love beyond the prison bars – Adam’s* story of hope

Prison Fellowship - Taking responsibility for my actionsSchool days were certainly not the best days of my life.  At 16 I had no qualifications.  I was involved in an armed robbery when I was 18 and sentenced to 5 years in a young offenders’ institute.

I had dreams like everyone else but I didn’t have the education to go to college; the only thing I could do was sell drugs and I thought this was the way I could earn the money to buy my dream.

At 18 I had become a dad.  I saw my son now and again but to be honest I wasn’t that bothered about him. Mum and Dad tried talking to me but I was too arrogant to listen.  Then one day, when I was under the influence of drugs, I robbed a drug dealer of cannabis and a couple of hundred pounds.  And I assaulted him.  I was in the police station for three days.
