50 members of the church and public met for All Saints Petersham’s Panel and Q&A on the Royal Commission into Institutional Child Sexual Abuse. The two aims of the evening were to shed light on the issue and engage with the conversation.
The panel was compered by Rev. Antony Barraclough, Rector of All Saints Petersham, with special guest panelists Margaret Fuller OAM, Sydney Anglican Diocese’s Contact Person, Leanne Slade, Legal Officer at the Professional Standards Unit of the Sydney Anglican Diocese, and Rev. Dr. Peter Bolt, Lecturer at Moore Theological College.
Important and thorough questions were asked of our discussion panel over a range of topics around the Royal Commission and the Sydney Anglican Diocese’s response to child sexual abuse. Literature on the professional standards, training and protocols is available at the information desk at the main entrance to the church hall.
If you have any more questions about what All Saints Petersham is doing in this regard, or what resources are available please don’t hesitate to contact Antony Barraclough through the church office: 02 9569 4735 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
