How we work
For 2024, our 20th anniversary year, we have agreed to refresh our vision and strategy:
To Glorify God and enjoy him
By prayerfully proclaiming the gospel of his grace
In every UK prison and to ex-offenders and their families.
We have added the words ‘enjoy him’; (from the Westminster Catechism) as Christ’s joy is wonderfully evident in the hearts and lives of those who serve both him and Daylight on the front line, and it is growing in those they minister to, and we are shifting our focus to increase the number of Daylight Prison Chaplains. We have the most influence for the gospel, and we are the greatest assistance to HMPPS (His Majesty’s Prison & Probation Service) Chaplaincy, where we have a ‘Volunteer Chaplain’ on the team in a prison. We will continue with the other opportunities God has given – connecting individuals with prisoners via Letter Writing, and our teams who go into prisons to lead Sunday services and Bible studies, often Christianity Explored courses.
Watch this space for updates!
“May I just say Daylight are doing a fantastic job. There are many lost souls in prison and if it wasn’t for you there would be a lot more.“ (Prisoner)
