Domestic and Family Violence Referral Team

Ryde Baptist Church seeks to be a welcoming and safe place for all and recognises that sometimes domestic family violence occurs in relationships.
Domestic Family Violence can happen in any intimate relationship across the socio-economic strata regardless of race, ethnicity, culture, wealth, sexuality, physical ability, age, education and religion. And sadly, it does occur in churches.
Ryde Baptist Church seeks to support individuals and families going through any form of Domestic Family Violence including physical, sexual, financial, emotional, social, or psychological.
In order for Ryde Baptist Church to support people in Domestic Family Violence a referral team has been put together by the Pastoral Team to be available for anyone going through Domestic Family Violence or for anyone who is concerned about a friend who may be going through Domestic Family Violence.
Our referral team consists of Jen, Judy and Robyn who have all worked in this area and have been trained to be alert to the signs of Domestic Family Violence and can give support and care to those seeking help. They will also refer those in need to specialist services.
They will be available to talk to on Sundays or you can contact them by phone on ‭02 9809 4977‬ or email dvsupport@rydebaptist.com.au
