Inquiring about a prisoner or seeking for a chaplain to make a personal visit?

If you would like a Chaplain to make a visit to a relative or friend who is spending time in one of Queensland’s correctional facilities, please contact the Chaplaincy Services Manager, Andrea Colledge, on 0437 761 304 who will organise the visit to take place. For the centres where an Anglican Chaplain is not currently placed, the coordinator will arrange with a Chaplain from within our ecumenical team to make the visit.

To locate a prisoner a ‘Prisoner Enquiries Phone Line’ has been established by Queensland Corrective Services – phone 07 3227 6055. This service is available from 9 am to 12 pm and 1 pm to 5 pm weekdays. Alternatively, information can be accessed by emailing
