The Compassion Prison Ministry (CPM) is a Pentecostal group with volunteers from
several quite different denominations. We however, have a defined leadership structure
with clear lines of accountability.
We are united in our pilgrimage to share God’s Good News within the prison establishment,
acknowledging God’s revelation in Christ and confessing Jesus as Lord and Saviour
according to the scriptures.
We work in partnership with prison Chaplaincy Teams in the UK.
The work of the ministry began after the Strangeways (Now HMP Manchester) riots,
when Overseer Clive Whittle heeded to the call to prison ministry and started as
a Chaplaincy Volunteer, assisting the Chaplain, Reverend Noel Proctor.
Over the years, Clive Whittle has gathered together a team of volunteers which he
leads. This team is Compassion Prison Ministries.
