In Churches Too

We recognise that there are a few myths around domestic abuse that we want to challenge. From the 'oh surely not in my church?' and the 'only in poorer church communities' we want to raise awareness that domestic abuse can happen in every church. We need to be equipped ready to respond when it does surface. We recognise that dealing with abuse will be messy and will take time. Yet we want to encourage churches to offer healing and refuge. We want to help churches link into the professional services on offer. We want to see the church as a place where women and men work together to take action to prevent violence.

Restored is an international Christian alliance working in partnership to promote healthy relationships between men and women and to end violence against women.  Restored aims to raise awareness of male violence and equip the church to stop it happening. We want to see churches and communities built on restored relationships where women are free from violence and the fear of violence by men.
