Event description
Daphne Marsden will be sharing her reflections from her paper 'Responding to the #MeToo Movement.

About this event

CW // TW // This session includes content which may disturb regarding child and adult sexual abuse and rape.

Listen:

The #MeToo movement emerged in 2017. It highlighted the pervasiveness of sexual assault, harassment, abuse, and rape. Women around the world took to social media to show their solidarity. Currently in Aotearoa New Zealand, the Royal Commission of Inquiry into Historical Abuse in Care for Faith Based settings is being undertaken.

Daphne Marsden leads the Project Esther Charitable Trust - which has been working with women and their families for more than two decades. She has written a paper titled "Responding to the #MeToo Movement". This paper speaks to the Church's response and learnings from this movement.

Come and join us as Daphne shares, asking questions like; How has the church responded? What can the Church learn? And how does the Church move forward in ways which resonate with God's heart and kingdom values?

Who we are: South West Baptist Church

South West Baptist Church is a church on a journey towards becoming a more Presence Based Church. This means we are making slow and deliberate movements towards solidarity with a people and a place.

Our commitment to this journey is guided by our timeless kingdom vision focused on Redemptive Communities and Lifelong Followers and a sense that we are responding to where the Holy Spirit is at work bringing new life and raising up a new way of living out our redemptive life.

Wānanga Week 2021

The purpose of Wānanga Week is to help us consider how we – the church, the body of Jesus – respond to the world around us and journey together towards kingdom transformation in the places we live.

We believe God is calling us to become more place-based, to take steps towards becoming a more Presence Based Church, individually and collectively.

Wānanga Week is a space to reflect on this call – and to help us find our feet within the story of what Jesus is doing in our neighbourhoods. Together we’ll explore some of the ideas and experiences of what it means to be a Presence Based Church.

Throughout the week there’ll be many different ways to connect in. We’ll be sharing kai in neighbourhoods, swapping stories, and creating space to kōrero about different topics facing our world and how we can respond.

Organiser of EVENING: The Church and responding to the #MeToo movement

We're a slow and deliberate movement towards solidarity with a people and a place.

We're rediscovering the importance of place for belonging.

We're individuals, groups and churches on a journey towards becoming more presence based.

We're following Jesus into the places we live.

We want to see kingdom transformation for Aotearoa and to the ends of the earth.

And we’re better when we do this journey together. So we gather to learn, connect and share. You'll find some of our events here.
