Inside Outreach in UK prisons and detention centres 

With over 85,000 men and women in custody and our prisons full to bursting, there has never been a greater need for sharing the Good News of Jesus with prisoners and encouraging them to ask God to transform their lives from the inside out. 

DPM-UK started Inside Outreach in 1995 by providing free Bible teaching in response to a stream of letters from prisoners who were tuning to Derek Prince’s programmes on UCB radio.

Why do we do this? 

Many people in prison or detention centres have plenty of time on their hands that they use to reflect on their lives. Many cry out to God for help and some come to Christ for the first time and want to learn more. This is where Inside Outreach comes in, by providing free Bible teaching through a set of Derek’s books and CDs. Over the years, our ministry of discipleship and encouragement has impacted hundreds of lives.

Recently, a prison chaplain wrote to us:

Often prisoners are particularly open to prayer and spiritual reading material. Many are concerned about their family relationships, their own mortality and questions about the end of the world. The Derek Prince materials come highly recommended and it’s exciting to see prisoners get a hunger for God’s word and for applying the Bible to their own life. Thank you so much! 

A prisoner commented today: ‘I was in a time of darkness. Reading the Self-Study Bible Course has shown me that He is with me.’ He also said that while memorising scriptures and doing the quiz at the end of the chapter, ‘You can’t cheat, because you know God is watching’.  

Often prisoners ask to continue receiving our materials after their release sharing with us that they have been truly blessed by Derek’s teaching. Some of them take the teaching to their countries and become a blessing to others. 

Will you give £15 today to help us encourage more prisoners in their walk of faith during these hard times?

Thank you for your generosity and please remember UK prisoners in your prayers also.
