We exist to
Bring Jesus to prisoners, whilst they are inside and when they are out
encouraging them to be transformed from the inside, out.
This has been occurring since the Associations inception, in accordances with its Objects. These are taken from our constitution and were ratified by those members present at our AGM in 2014.
