Filling Station in Prisons
The first ever Filling Station monthly celebration meeting is to take place in a prison, this September. The location is Hollesley Bay Prison in Suffolk, and will commence on September 19th. A team of Christian volunteers, staff and the prison chaplain, are organising and hosting the evenings, which will following the tried and tested Filling Station format of; worship, testimonies, teaching and prayer ministry. One of the host team, Mrs Wendy Mann, expressed her excitement at being able to hold such an event in Hollesley Bay and said she hoped it could be copied elsewhere within the prison system if successful. She and others have just run the prison’s first ever Alpha Course, which was popular with the inmates and provided a natural link to a full Filling Station meeting. Exact details of this meeting, which we understand may be open to a limited number of outsiders, will be displayed on this website shortly.
