Next Weeks Speaker


David Molyneux is Executive Director of Prison Fellowship Victoria

Prison Fellowship Victoria is an interdenominational Christian organization that engages with and provides support to prisoners, ex prisoners, their families and others affected by crime through a range of services and activities in Victoria.  It is a member of Prison Fellowship International, the largest volunteer organisation working in the Corrections area both in Australia and internationally.

Prison Fellowship has a presence in all 14 prisons in Victoria. At the core of their service provision is the team of 260 dedicated volunteers, men and women, who visit prisoners across the State.  They provide friendship, mentoring and pastoral care support for prisoners.  Volunteers give more than 3,000 hours throughout the year in this service.


Currently they receive no Government funding and rely heavily on donations, fundraising activities and grants from philanthropic trusts.


David will bring Sean Wood with him, who is a graduate of the Prison program and is putting his life back together.

David will do a brief power point presentation of 10 minutes then ask Sean to share for 5 minutes followed by a 5 minute conclusion.
