Prison ministry

_thumbnail_Photo-11---Silverwater_gaol_.jpg Since 1996 the Family International has ministered to those in prison, offering support and counsel, as well as arranging visits for those who have no visitors. We participate in family days and special events and assist the prison chaplains by providing music and Christian counseling for inmates on a weekly basis. Family members have also assisted the chaplaincy in Kariong Juvenile Justice Centre on the Central Coast, as well as providing basketball training and bringing in young people from the community to interact with the boys.
