The Red Chair Gallery
"We used the Red Chair in worship this morning, and gave out white ribbons for men against violence. I explained at the beginning of the service that 1 woman or girl was killed every 11 minutes by a family member/intimate then lit five candles and blew one out every 11 minutes. It felt quite stark and chilling, but was effective. Someone shared after the service of how domestic violence had impacted her own life - a conversation that would otherwise not have happened."
"We held a Service in our Church Centre after a minute's silence. All present were encouraged to write a prayer on a red paper chain before the Service. During the first hymn we joined them into one big chain and then broke the chains during the intercessions - [it was] very moving."
