This festive season, a carol service will be broadcast twice on Christmas Day into every single cell in the UK's 64 HM Prisons, bringing hope to those serving time in prison during the holidays.

The service comes at a time when Covid-19 has put even greater pressure on the already stretched system and the prisoners and staff within it. 

The programme will be screened in over 40,000 cells and is organised by Christ Church Winchester.

It will feature Guvna B, a three-time MOBO music awards winner, and a former SAS soldier of 17 years, telling the compelling story of how his life was spared during conflicts in Bosnia and Iraq.

The Reverend Craig Philbrick said: "Christmas Day is a tough day for those inside, and it is a real privilege to be able to share some hope and good news with them all."

The programme will be shown on WayOut TV (the prison TV service) at 12 noon till 6pm on Christmas Day.
