Compassion Prison Ministries is a small knit team of dedicated Christian leaders and volunteers with the aim of providing a Christian witness in prison, supporting prisoners, staff and ex-offenders. 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



We primarily have two main ongoing projects, Compassion Prison Ministry and Compassion Food Bank. Compassion Prison Ministry is a team of Christians who undertake prison services weekly. Compassion Food Bank is a project aimed reducing food poverty in Greater Manchester

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.


Compassion Food Bank has been set up by members of our team with the goal of supporting those in the community experiencing food poverty. Compassion Food Bank has been a great success, distributing 2524 food parcels, feeding approximately 4864 people and providing at least 43,776 meals to the people of Greater Manchester
