setting the scene summing up
Creating Safer Space is about creating an environment within our Church communities where those who are vulnerable – children and adults – are respected, valued, protected and listened to.

This is at the core of our faith.

Setting the Scene: summing up
setting the scene summing up20
The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in Spirit. (Psalm 34:18)

To act justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God. (Micah 6:8 (NIV))

Let the little children come to me, and do not stop them; for it is to such as these that the kingdom of heaven belongs. (Matthew 19:14)

[Nothing] will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 8:39)

some barriers
Some barriers

In groups think of some reasons why :

  • churches may not respond well
  • children/vulnerable adults may find it hard to tell.
why churches may not respond well
Why churches may not respond well

they may not want to hear

this doesn’t happen in church

the person/family is well known and respected

the limits of confidentiality/ confession are misunderstood

desire to keep this within the church

not knowing who to consult

church is about forgiveness not condemnation

confusion about falseallegations

embarrassment.

why children vulnerable adults may not always tell they may
Why children/vulnerable adults may not always tell. They may:
  • not know it is wrong
  • be unable to communicate
  • be too dependent on the perpetrator
  • have tried to tell before without success
  • be too scared of consequences
  • feel ashamed/guilty.
case studies
Case Studies
