Domestic abuse is widespread. It continues to affect people from all walks of life, including churchgoers and those with whom we come into contact through our activities. The Methodist Church holds that domestic abuse in all its forms is unacceptable and incompatible with the Christian faith and a Christian way of living and is committed to being a safer space for all.
These pages will feature a number of resources about domestic abuse to help increase understanding and ensure this is an area that does not go unnoticed or unchallenged in the Methodist Church. This will help to ensure that victims and survivors feel able to come forward and know they will receive an appropriate and supportive response from the Church, and that the actions of perpetrators are not ignored and they are accountable for their actions.
