A message that can no longer be ignored…

Drawing on the personal experience of survivors of abuse and their allies, Letters to a Broken Church speaks directly into the existential abuse crisis facing the Church of England and other Christian denominations right now.

Its powerful message is that the structures, leadership, practices and culture of the Church must change radically to face up to the historic scale of abuse within its institutions at all levels.

The clear requirement for transparency and accountability after decades of evasion and denial is also highlighted in these essays, along with the need to make proper recompense to those whose lives have been impacted.

Contributors to Letters to a Broken Church include a serving bishop, a well-known newspaper columnist, several theologians and others from public life — but principally people in the shadows whose voices and experience as survivors have frequently been pushed aside, marginalised or silenced within the Church.

Here is a searingly honest, multi-voice call for action and redress that can no longer be ignored.

Janet Fife was one of the first women to be ordained in the Church of England. She is a writer and survivor and has a research degree in the pastoral care of survivors. She is disabled.Gilo is a survivor, hymn-writer, and outsider theologian.
