Joint Churches Domestic Violence Prevention Project

Attention: open in a new window. | Print |

Joint Churches Domestic Violence Prevention Project (JCDVPP) was established in 1991 in response to the needs of victims and perpetrators of domestic Violence in the Church and community. It was set up in recognition of the fact that in many instances those needs were being inadequately or inappropriately addressed by the church.

The group seeks to address the problem by raising the awareness of clergy and lay people through the publication of literature and workshops.

In 2007, JCDVPP became a Commission of QCT and can be contacted via the QCT office.

JCDVPP has released two important resources of late:
◾a revised and updated version of the much-acclaimed earlier booklet entitled Questions Women Ask about Domestic Violence and Christian Beliefs
◾an audio-visual CD-ROM for clergy and pastoral workers entitled Not in My Church (available from QCT for $2:00 per CD incl. postage).
