An Anglican chaplain normally takes overall responsibility for spiritual care at prisons, but will cater for many faiths.

Prisoners of different religions may well share the same facilities - with services for each held during the week.

At Chelmsford Prison, the multi-faith centre hosts Roman Catholic Mass, Church of England services and Muslim Friday prayers.

The chaplaincy team also includes a Hindu, Buddhist and Sikh among others.
