A Place To Belong

Posted on: 5th March 2024

One of the key characteristics of domestic abuse is isolation. Abusers strip away relationships with friends, family members and church community, leaving survivors feeling alone. Regaining a sense of community is a vital element of the healing process. Put simply, survivors need a place to belong.

“God sets the lonely in families” — Psalm 68:6

Central to our mission at Restored has always been encouraging and challenging the church to provide that space of welcome and belonging for survivors of domestic abuse. Many of the women we support have been let down by churches, but we believe that God has a great plan to use His people to bring healing and hope. We believe that when survivors of domestic abuse are welcomed and included, the whole church benefits.

That’s why we’re committed to training churches on domestic abuse, and calling God’s people to take their place in supporting those who are most in need of a loving community. Today, you can be a part of that.
