Every prison establishment, including HMP Brixton, has an Anglican chaplain and offenders are able to attend services in accordance with the rites of the Church of England.

We recognise the importance of faith and the positive impact that it can have on the lives of offenders, which is why there are multi-faith chaplaincy teams in every prison.
