Domestic Violence

Churches Together in Cumbria:

  • Acknowledges that domestic violence is an affront to the Christian Gospel.
  • Resolves to work towards making all our churches safe places where those who experience or have witnessed domestic violence can find sanctuary and informed help.
  • Calls on churches and congregations to be aware of the signs of domestic violence, the support available for victims, families and perpetrators and
  • Urges every local congregation to break the silence about domestic violence.
