UK prisoners to watch Spring Harvest 2023

by Sophie Drew

Spring Harvest, one of the UK's most prominent Christian festivals, has announced that its upcoming online event, Spring Harvest Home, will be streamed live into 72 prisons across the country for the first time ever.

From April 10th to 14th, the initiative aims to provide prisoners with access to “uplifting Christian content that can inspire and transform their lives.”

By streaming the event live into prisons, Spring Harvest hopes to make it easier for Britain’s criminals to engage with the gospel, in a bid to lead people to the ways of Christ.

The event is a collaboration between Spring Harvest, Wayout TV, and various UK Prison Chaplaincy teams.

The theme for this year's event is "Flipped," focusing on how Christians are called to “challenge the status quo and infuse the world with hope and possibility.”

Abby Guinness, Head of Spring Harvest, said: "We believe that everyone should have access to the hope and love that the Christian faith provides, and we are grateful for the opportunity to partner with Way Out TV and the Prison Chaplaincy team to make this possible.”

Phil Chadder, national leader of the Prison Chaplaincy team, added: “In every prison across the country there are Christian services and Bible study groups taking place each week.

“Men, women, and young people encountering the risen Lord Jesus, learning of his love for them and call on their lives.”

A Monthly Gift Of $11 Makes A World Of Difference

In a world of fake news there’s never been a greater need for quality Christian journalism. Premier’s mission is to provide the Church with the most up to date and relevant news, told from a Christian perspective. But we can’t do it without you.

Unlike many websites we haven't put up a paywall — we want to keep our journalism free at the point of need and as open as we can. Premier’s news output takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. No one in the USA is sharing news like we are across radio, magazines and online so please help us to continue that today.

For a monthly gift of $11 or more we’d also be able to send you a free copy of the brand new Premier Bible, a wonderful Anglicised version of the NLT packed with exclusive bonus content, reading plan and resources to help you get the most out of scripture.

Your monthly support will make a world of difference. Thank you.
