Inside Out Prison Chaplaincy has been providing effective and co-ordinated pastoral care in Correctional Centres since 1978.
Today, there are over 30 Chaplains in 17 Correctional Centres located throughout Queensland.
IOPC also provides a post-release mentoring program; training and equipping Christian mentors who nurture prisoners after their release, with the support of local churches. This program is called Inside Out Connection.
IOPC is also committed to raising awareness amongst the Christian community about the plight of prisoners and their need for ongoing support.
We are a not-for-profit organisation, operated by Christians who have a genuine love and concern for Queenslanders in our State’s prisons.
The vision of our founders for an effective continuing ministry in prisons remains the same to this day:
- co-ordinated throughout the State
- evangelical in tone
- with a non-denominational approach
