In 1952, the late Rev Khoo Siaw Hua was the first Honorary Prison Chaplain who responded to a call for volunteer prison counsellors by the then Commissioner of Police. In a terse and profound statement, the Commissioner appealed: “These prisoners fear neither men nor law, make them fear God.” Some 20 Christian leaders responded and the Christian prison ministry was launched.
A Christian community that embraces prisoners, ex-offenders and their families with God’s love and transformative power
To mobilise, engage and equip the Christian community to minister to prisoners, ex-offenders and their families, enabling them to be a blessing to society
Prison Fellowship Singapore (PFS) partners churches, Christian organisations, halfway houses, rehabilitative enterprises, prison authorities and volunteers to spread the Gospel and nurture disciples behind and beyond Singapore’s prison walls. We help transform prisoners from brokenness into wholeness where men and women become new creations in Christ.
Our core activities focus on strengthening the church-community partnership and developing cohesiveness and integration with society through programmes that bring prisoners, victims and the community together.
Internationally, PFS is one of over 100 affiliated members of Prison Fellowship International (PFI).
70×7 is an initiative of Prison Fellowship Singapore promotes restorative justice. Our services and programmes serve the community of families and individuals in the Singapore prison system and seek to reconcile love and justice.
We have IPC-registered (Institute of Public Character) status under the Ministry of Social and Family Development (MSF). All donations made to Seventy Times Seven qualify for tax-exemption receipts.
