A research study carried out in the Anglican Diocese of Melbourne into family violence within the Church community. The study focused on the victim/survivor's experience of violence. The research was directed at three groups: members of Anglican congregations and women's networks; clergy in parish ministry; and church professionals in health, welfare and educational settings. Data were gathered through a range of methods including a Congregational Member's Questionnaire, a phone-in survey and personal stories offered by women. One strategy to solicit participation was the provision of educational workshops for women in four congregations. Provides findings on the prevalence and types of violence experienced by the women and many stories of women's experience. Also outlines the views of the Clergy about violence and identifies principles for future action to address violence against women.
