Actions and Detail Panel
The Gospel, Sexual Abuse and the Church - Sudbury
Mon 8 May 2017, 19:00 – 21:00 BST
Aimed at clergy, lay ministers (Readers, LLMs, Lay Elders) and those with safeguarding responsibilities: using the publication of "The Gospel, Sexual Abuse and the Church: A theological resource for the local church" by the CofE as a resource to get people reflecting on how the church can be more accessible for those who are survivors of abuse, how it can safely welcome those who have abused in the past, how it can ensure everyone's safety whilst doing these things, and how it can appropriately reflect on the place of themes such as forgiveness and redemption alongside recognising the damage caused by abuse and the need to keep safeguards in place. Led by Ruth Dennigan, Discipleship and Ministry Development Officer.
This event is free and refreshments will be provided.
