Caring For Ex Offenders
In early June 11 people gathered together for the Caring For Ex Offenders Vision Night. It was great to meet everyone, worship and to express our hope to be a community that welcomes and shares life alongside those being released from custody.
Relationships are being developed with nearby Prison Chaplaincy teams, processes & safeguarding training are being prepared and lots of coffee has been enjoyed whilst meeting those interested in joining the group. It has been wonderful to receive interest & meet with members of nearby Churches in Hampshire who are keen to participate with the vision of CFEO too!
CFEO connects someone coming out of prison with a local church community in order to better assist that person's resettlement into society.
Next up, we're hoping to meet together for a summer social in August. Details tbc.
We are feeling open & excited at how God could love the city through us in this way. For more information and to get involved please contact Lauren at Lauren@harbourcchurchportsmouth.org
