How can I know more about PFS and ways to help?

Every first Wednesday of the month at 7PM, we hold "Come Together @ PFS", a group info session where you can meet us personally, learn in-depth about what the ministry is doing and connect with people who also have a heart for prison ministry. Contact us to RSVP!

How can I apply to volunteer?

To volunteer for any of our programmes you will need to fill out a Volunteer Form. Someone from our team will contact you and help you get involved, once we receive your form.

Who can volunteer?

Anyone who shares the vision of Prison Fellowship Singapore as a Christian organisation can get involved. We are an organisation that welcomes diversity. We have volunteering opportunities for a wide range of ages, skills and availability.

Why do I have to go through the application process?

We ask all our volunteers to fill out a Volunteer Form because volunteers who work with prisoners may come into contact with confidential and sensitive information, and not everyone is suitable for this role. These procedures are in place to protect our volunteers, and we appreciate your patience and cooperation with this.

Do I need any particular skills to volunteer?

We believe that each person can contribute in a meaningful way, through the many programmes under Prison Fellowship Singapore. However, for some roles there may be a particular skill or qualification required. Training will be offered by Prison Fellowship Singapore for any role that requires it.

Will I receive training?

New volunteers will receive basic training and induction. On top of that, in desiring to nurture you, we organise various training and equipping sessions throughout the year in the areas of character development, practical skills and acquiring knowledge about prison ministry - all of which will help you grow as a volunteer and benefit your personal life.

What will I get out of the volunteering experience?

Our volunteers all choose to put their faith into action, for a variety of reasons:
Many feel inspired by seeing the change God brings into the lives of prisoners.
Others see volunteering as their chance to use their skills and experience to give something back to the community.
Volunteering can also be a very social activity and a great way to meet new people.

What if I don’t have much time?

You can still get involved. How about giving financially to our work or joining our mailing list?

Is 70x7 a part of PFS?

Yes, 70x7 is an initiative within Prison Fellowship Singapore, established as an IPC (Institution of Public Character). It is the non-religious arm of PFS which runs community and social work programmes open to all, regardless of race, language or religion. Its name was inspired by the verse in Matthew 18:21-22, "Then Peter came to Him and said, "Lord, how often shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? Up to seven times?" Jesus said to him, “I do not say to you, up to seven times, but up to seventy times seven."
