If you are someone within your church who works at developing resources, implementing training or drafting policy on domestic and family violence, the
National Council of Churches in Australia
invites you to attend its domestic and family violence roundtable on Thursday 2 May. It aims to bring together people who work in the domestic and family violence area of their church and to provide a space where people can share, learn and build networks with others working within the domestic and family violence space within churches.
Parishes invited to host workshop addressing domestic and family violence
