‘Domest­ic Abuse’ inform­a­tion:
Domest­ic abuse is a pat­tern of beha­viour based on using power and con­trol over anoth­er, caus­ing fear and intim­id­a­tion.  Domest­ic abuse is a prob­lem in Aus­trali­an fam­il­ies, we know it exists and its wrong.  It hap­pens in church com­munit­ies too.

Our church says NO to abuse.  We care about you ‑your safety is our pri­or­ity. If you are exper­i­en­cing domest­ic abuse or know someone who is, it is not your fault.  You are not to blame.  Sup­port is avail­able.  Talk to someone at church you trust.  You can also call 1800RESPECT on 1800 737 732 or the DV Hot­line on 1800 656 463.  For more inform­a­tion vis­it:
