New guidelines on sexual harassment issued by the Methodist Church
The Methodist Church has worked with Director of Place for Hope, Ruth Harvey, to publish a set of good practice guidelines for churches to raise awareness of sexual harassment, support victims, and bring about a change in culture to ensure all churches are caring communities, where people safely meet for worship, sharing and learning.
In the foreword to the guidelines and in a short film to go with it, the Revd Dr Barbara Glasson, President of the Conference, says:
“In these guidelines the Methodist Church is stepping forward to enable a safer worshipping and working environment for all associated with its work. More than this, it is aiming to initiate a change of mind-set and behaviours to take responsibility away from victims and bring those who harass to task.”
