The Churches’ Criminal Justice Forum (CCJF) was set up in 2001 and is a network of Churches Together in Britain and Ireland. The primary purpose of the CCJF is to uphold Christian values in the field of criminal justice.
It does this by sharing information about Christian-based activities and criminal justice initiatives, raising awareness of community justice concerns in local churches, engaging with politicians and developing dialogue on criminal justice with other faiths.
CCJF has its own membership structure for church denominations and Christian service providers, consistent with its purposes and objectives. Twice yearly network meetings are open to all CCJF members, while project work is guided by an executive committee composed of church representatives.
