Revd Paul Cowley MBE spoke to us on the power of HOPE from Matthew 25, the Sheep and the Goats. Paul founded Caring for Ex-Offenders in answer to the need for The Church to support ex-offenders on release from prison and equip them to reintegrate into society. Paul served in the army for 17 years before becoming an ordained minister in the Church of England. He has 20 years’ experience of working with people inside and outside prison, and with socially excluded and vulnerable adults. Paul has recently been appointed Bishop’s Advisor to Prisons and in 2015, was awarded the MBE from Her Majesty the Queen in the Recent Honours list for services to ex-offenders.
