Time For Change Ministries
Time For Change Ministries provides Biblical resources for use in the prison environment. These resources are written in a way that clearly expounds the passage and presents the gospel, while taking into account certain factors that specifically affect prisoners. These include the average literacy level of a UK prisoner, prevalent mental health issues, ADHD and vulnerabilities of prisoners. The result is an interactive and engaging presentation of the Bible.

Not to us, O LORD, not to us but to your name be the glory… Psalm 115 v 1
