We welcome the findings of the Victorian Royal Commission into Family Violence.
For the last six months, the Victorian Royal Commission into Family Violence has heard harrowing evidence from victims. They have heard about the struggle to break a culture of violence against women and the sometimes fatal consequences of inadequate responses by authorities to instances of abuse.
Today as the Commission releases its recommendations, Common Grace grieves with victims who have wanted to leave violent situations but have had nowhere to go and no support to stay safe.
As we start to see changes to the systems that support victims and hold perpetrators accountable, Common Grace longs to see the Australian churches become powerful advocates for prevention, intervention and healing.
Please join us in prayer today, as we commit this next chapter of the Australian Church to God.
