The Methodist Church will be holding its first Domestic Abuse Webinar on Tuesday 24 November from 10.00 am to 11.30 am..
Links to the registration page are on the Methodist Church Website: https://www.methodist.org.uk/safeguarding/domestic-abuse-webinar-tuesday-24-november-2020/
The Methodist Church’s first Domestic Abuse Webinar aims to promote awareness of domestic abuse and look at how, as a church, we can begin to tackle this and respond appropriately to victims/survivors.
We have put together a packed and diverse programme, including an interview with the Domestic Abuse Commissioner, Nicole Jacobs.
Other speakers include:
· Mandy Marshall, Co-Founder and previous Co-Director of the domestic abuse charity Restored (now the Director for Gender Justice for the Anglican Communion)
· Dr Lesley Orr, a Research Fellow at the Centre for Theology and Public Issues, University of Edinburgh
· The Revd Helen Cameron, Chair of Northampton District
· The Revd Dr Jonathan Hustler, Secretary of the Methodist Conference
There will be contributions from domestic abuse survivors.
The Vice-President and President of the Methodist Conference will open and close the proceedings.
Please do join us in our drive to highlight and address domestic abuse in the Methodist Church. We look forward to seeing you!
The Methodist Church seeks to offer a safe place for all people in its worship and community life and holds that domestic abuse in all its forms is unacceptable, inconsistent and incompatible with the Christian faith.
