Our Mission Statement
The Riverside Church Prison Ministry is an organization of volunteers that conducts advocacy and outreach programs on behalf of people in prison, their families and the community from which most come and to which most return.
The volunteers – lay people, community workers, students, family members and people formerly incarcerated – work inside the prisons as well as on the outside worshipping, assisting families and sponsoring prison reform.
What We Do
Prison Ministry meets at The Riverside Church on the fourth Sunday of every month at 1:00 p.m.—directly after the Sunday morning worship service.
For additional information contact The Riverside Church Mission and Social Justice Office at 212.870.6854.
