Safe Church Program

Events and news from our churches: 

Preventing Violence Against Women Forum

The Anglican Diocese of Melbourne is hosting this online Forum.

The forum will have a focus on their diocesan context, but it is hoped that it will be a valuable resource for others working in similar areas. 

The line up includes:  

  • Stories and lessons from parishes taking action. 
  • Expertise from women who have experienced family violence about how churches can support people well. 
  • Launch of the University of Melbourne’s evaluation report about the Diocese’s Preventing Violence Against Women Program. 
  • Interactive workshops and practical resources. 
  • Prayerful reflection.

When: 10.00am – 1.30pm AEST on 15 May 2021

Please note: this forum was originally taking place in person but has now been moved online so that more people can join.
