Chaplaincy and Criminal Justice

Designed as a resource and networking day for chaplains developing ministries or serving in the police, prisons or courts, this day will explore particular challenges and opportunities faced by those working in the criminal justice system. With a specific focus on the theme of "crime and punishment", we will address the overarching question: How do we develop compassionate responses to damaged and damaging people?
