Our vision is to see lives being renewed, restored and reintegrated into families, communities and the Church.
Grace Prison Ministry (GPM) partners with Prison Fellowship Singapore to reach out to ex-offenders. We bring them the good news of Jesus Christ and journey with them while they are serving their time in prison (In-Care). We also reach out to their families (Family-Care) and journey with them in their recovery after their release from prisons.
In-Care volunteers conduct Chapel Services fortnightly at the Singapore Changi Prisons. We build friendships with the inmates and share with them the redemptive message of hope and love.
When they are released, we meet them at the prison gate and introduce our After-Care team to them.
The After-Care team provides physical, emotional and spiritual care for our returning sisters and brothers through Bible study and follow-up programmes. We also facilitate their eventual integration into our Grace Groups.
Family-Care works with After-Care to bridge the incarcerated with their family members upon their release from prison. We seek to re-establish the bond between them so that the returnees can be reconciled with their loved ones. This helps to ground them in their faith journey.
Matt 24:40, 44-45
“40 And the King will answer and say to them, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me….. 44Then they also will answer Him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not minister to You?’ 45 Then He will answer them, saying, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, in as much as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to Me.’
Christmas Joy with
Grace Prison Ministry
On 17 Dec 2022, Grace Prison Ministry held its annual Christmas outreach for our beneficiaries at Grace@BukitBatok. One of the Grace Groups, Bigger and Smaller, led the worship and helped out with the food.
The turnout of about 90 pax were blessed by God’s love and presence. Some of the guests were stepping into a church for the first time and they were touched by this experience.
After the hearty lunch, the crowd adjourned to Agape Hall for “soul food”. Following GPM chairman Kelvin Chew’s welcome address and worship, there were moving testimonies by beneficiary Madam Chandra and a Gracian, Sis Seok Lin, as well as a short exhortation from Pastor Au Wai Ching. There was one re-dedication and two families who requested for prayer.
We give praise to God for the programme that went smoothly, the unity among the volunteers, the fruitful time with the guests and the opportunity to serve in such a meaningful way for His kingdom and glory.
