Domestic and Family Violence Workshop

Last year, the Baptist Association NSW & ACT partnered with Relationships Australia to offer a training on domestic and family violence specific for Baptist Leaders. We had an overwhelming response and did not have enough spaces for everyone who wanted to attend. So, we are going to do it again! We want to emphasise this workshop will cover the same content as previous DFV Workshops.

Join us this year as we hear from an expert panel of leaders in this space and Practice Specialist, Andrew King. Together we will explore next steps in addressing domestic and family violence, learn about culture change in our churches, get the chance to ask questions, review case studies, and upskill on prevention through teaching on healthy relationships. This will be a great time to bring your questions and ask them in a safe place where others are facing similar challenges and opportunities. Relationships Australia has already delivered seminars for several Baptist churches, including Gordon Baptist Church.

“The seminar was accessible, practical, and relevant for dealing well with these issues in our local church context. It was a stimulating, helpful way of equipping us as a church to be alert and responsive in taking appropriate action. Everyone who came left being glad for the time we had spent together and the input we had received.” – John Merchant, Senior Pastor at Gordon Baptist Church 

The event is finished.
