The Ministry was formed by Reverend Clive Whittle. The ministry is always looking to expand, so if you are interested in joining us, please contact us

Compassion Ministry currently operate in HMP Preston, HMP Garth, HMP Wymott, HMP Thorn Cross, HMP Hindley, HMP Manchester (Strangeways) and HMP Styal. The ministry has contact with 200 inmates regularly in the North West of England.


The work of the ministry began after the Strangeways (Now HMP Manchester) riots, when Clive Whittle heeded to the call to prison ministry and started as a chaplaincy volunteer, assisting the chaplain, Rev. Noel Proctor.  Over the years, the ministry has developed and the Team has continually increased, which is overseen by Clive. The Chaplaincy Teams visit various prisons across the UK where monthly contact is maintained with over 200 inmates. The Teams are involved in conducting Sunday Services, ministering to inmates throughout the week, encouragement to those in need and conducting baptisms to inmates who have received the Lord Jesus Christ. The Compassion Team believe in the infallible Word of God and continue to confess Jesus as Lord and Saviour according to the scriptures.
