Restored (http://www.restoredrelationships.org/) is an international Christian alliance working to transform relationships and end violence against women.
Restored aims to raise awareness of male violence and equip the church to stop it happening. They want to see churches and communities built on restored relationships where women are free from violence and the fear of violence by men.
Restored are particularly calling all men to respect women, challenge other men and speak out to end violence against women. First Man Standing is being launched in association with Christian Vision for Men (see cvm.org.uk) and is an opportunity for men everywhere to be the first in their family, club, church or workplace to stand up and speak out about building strong relationships and ending violence against women.
Restored have also launched the information pack ‘Ending Domestic Abuse: A Pack For Churches‘ to enable the church to address domestic abuse both within its own community and wider society, and to work through how to deal with domestic abuse issues in today’s world. It is intended to raise awareness and to highlight some of the areas that need to be considered in making our churches safe places.
You can download the pack FREE OF CHARGE here.
