On Day One, Assembly National Consultant Rev. Charissa Suli shares the first message, calling us to face the painful truth that domestic and family violence happens in all corners of society, including our own communities.
“All people are created in the image of God and are known and loved by God. Our commitment as a Church is to the equality of men and women and respect for all humans,” said Charissa.
“Join me as we speak strongly against all forms of domestic and family violence and let us be the hope-bearers of Christ to the world.”
You can follow and share the messages shared by Uniting Church women each day on the Assembly Facebook page.

The World Council of Churches is participating in the campaign with the theme “From Our House to Yours” highlighting the link between the household of God and the need to make all our homes safe and loving spaces.
