Domestic abuse is prevalent in every corner of society. Our research has shown that this is true even in our churches, where one in four churchgoers have experienced abuse in a present relationship. Our Church Pack has been designed to empower churches around the world to engage with the challenges of domestic abuse, to root it out, to support survivors and to teach a better way.
'Restored brings together experience, wisdom and energy for combatting this serious and often secret form of abuse. This Pack shares this expertise and enables churches to play a full and vital part in the work.'
— The Right Reverend Alistair Redfern, Bishop of Derby —
Ending Domestic Abuse: A Pack for Churches is a comprehensive resource designed to help your church prevent and respond to domestic abuse. We want to see men and women flourish, and this resource will address some common myths and provide practical ways to respond to disclosures of abuse, as well as taking a look at some of the theology around domestic abuse.
This resource is also available as a digital download in the following languages: English, Spanish, French, Arabic, Polish, Russian, Portuguese and Swedish. US and international versions are also available.
'Reported domestic abuse is alarmingly on the rise in our country, and is no respecter of social, racial or religious boundaries. As followers of Jesus it is vital that we join with others in praying, speaking out, and doing all we can to confront this evil in our society, seeking the protection and restoration of victims and the transformation of perpetrators alike. I commend this Pack, and pray that it will be widely distributed and used.'
— The Right Revd Andrew Watson, Bishop of Guildford —
