The light has come into the world, and people who do evil things are judged guilty because they love the dark more than the light John 3v19

Rev'd Rosie Bates 25th July 2018

Thank you for your courage in bringing the shameful history of abuse into the Light of Christ. May the reception of these letters bring justice and healing to all concerned.

Christ be with me, Christ within me, Christ behind me, Christ before me, Christ beside me, Christ to win me, Christ to comfort and restore me. Christ beneath me, Christ above me, Christ in quiet, Christ in danger, Christ in hearts of all that love me, Christ in mouth of friend and stranger.

Because these letters need to be read by as many people as possible. Those who care, those who don't (at the moment).

For too long the Church of England has been allowed to regulate and police itself. This must stop. It must be accountable outside itself. Evidence, survivors of abuse and history has shown it cannot be trusted to mark its own homework. It must make amends. Whether forced upon it or voluntarily, Church of England Child Safeguarding must be reformed. I hope with all my heart this book is the catalyst for those amends and that reform. Adam - @Knuffsed

This is brilliant follow-up to what was a positive start at General Synod in York this month to the Church beginning to listen to the voices of the survivors. I hope many other Synod members will give it their support.

Pleased to help support this important and timely project. Thanks to all who are making this possible, and for the contributors too...

DAVID CRAIG 16th July 2018

It is essential that responsibility be taken for past and present abuses, that Canterbury, unlike Rome, not only repents but acknowledges its failings in protecting the bureaucracy instead of promoting the mission, of God's church

Alistair McBay 16th July 2018

The moral bankruptcy of the established Church leaders, and the complicity of the rest of the Establishment in the cover-up of child sex abuse by Anglican clergy needs to be exposed in as many ways as possible and as often as possible.
