The issue of Domestic Violence is one that the Fixing Her Eyes team is committed to keeping front and centre until the church is a safe place for all.

"He has told you, human one, what is good and what the Lord requires from you: to do justice, embrace faithful love, and walk humbly with your God." Micah 6.8 

"Learn to do right; seek justice. Defend the oppressed." Isaiah 1.17
