Start a conversation about Domestic and Family Violence 

The Uniting Church Assembly this week launched Beyond Violence, a new resource that aims to help congregations and communities begin a conversation about Domestic and Family Violence (DFV).

In a video introduction, UCA President Dr Deidre Palmer and National Consultant Rev Charissa Suli speak of the Uniting Church's commitment to say no to all forms of violence and urge UCA members to help change the culture that allows DFV to occur.

The resource includes theological reflection, worship resources, key statistics, helpful information on how to pastorally care for those experiencing or fleeing DFV and key actions we can take to build a world "Beyond Violence".

"Safety is only possible if we all play a part"

UCA President Dr Deidre Palmer has offered a video message reflecting on what it means to be a safe church, highlighting some of the collaborative work being done to develop a shared understanding across the Uniting Church of our responsibilities to create spaces where children and young people are safe.
