On Tuesday 18th November, we helped to organise and chair a debate in the House of Commons on child abuse and its existence within different religious settings, including the Catholic Church, the Church of England, Judaism and Islam.

The debate lasted for two and a half hours and when we asked the audience if they wanted a short break at the half way point, they unanimously declined. It was a very thought-provoking evening, filled with peaceful questions and an audience who graciously sat through seven panel speeches and launched themselves into the discussion with many and varied views, all fascinating.

We can now share some photos of the event with you, as well as the audio of the panel delivering their speeches. We hope very much that more media will be made available in the next few days, but in the meantime come and relive the debate with us.
