Domestic Abuse: What are our behaviours, attitudes and cultures?

1. Purpose

"The purpose of this survey is so that we can notice change and identify the gaps in how we are becoming ever more a church which reflects God’s  desire for every unique and precious individual to go on becoming who they fully are in relationship with God and in healthy, respectful relationships with their neighbour, not least within families, households and worshipping communities. Jesus Christ said that he came that we might have life in all its fullness (John 10:10), yet whenever we fail to recognise, name, and address destructive relationship we fail to join in with God’s Kingdom work of hope and transformation as we pray for God’s kingdom to come on earth as in heaven".
