Inter-faith service in support of people affected by childhood trauma

End Date/Time: Sunday, 6 November 2016 11:30 AM
Location: South Sydney Uniting Church
Address: South Sydney Uniting Church, 56A Raglan St Waterloo 2017 NSW

In this gathering of people from Buddhist, Hindu, Muslim, Jewish and Christian faiths we will join together and mourn with, and for, those who have been betrayed and wounded in childhood. We will name our hurts, bear witness to the experience of adult survivors of child abuse, from testimony gathered by playwright Alana Valentine, hear a story of recovery, reflect in silence and with gentle music, and pray for justice and healing.

Every night will have its morning, every pain will have an end, every burden will be lightened”

This Prayer Service is in support of Blue Knot Day, a national awareness day convened by Blue Knot Foundation on which all communities are asked to unite in support of Australian adult survivors of childhood trauma and abuse. It is hosted by Pitt Street Uniting Church and South Sydney Uniting Church.

Note: we anticipate there may be television cameras filming people who have agreed to take speaking parts in the service. BE ASSURED there will be NO filming of the congregation. No one will be filmed without permission.

“Blue Knot Foundation has a key role to play in the building of community capacity in care provision to those who have experienced childhood abuse and trauma in any environment.”

NIALL MULLIGAN Manager, Lifeline Northern Rivers

“I think Blue Knot Foundation is a fantastic support organisation for people who have experienced childhood trauma/abuse, for their families/close friends and for professionals who would like to learn how to more effectively work with these people.”

Psychologist Melbourne

“It's such a beautiful thing that you are doing. Helping people to get through this.”


“It was only last September when I discovered the Blue Knot Foundation website and I will never forget the feeling of support and empathy that I received when I finally made the first phone call to Blue Knot Helpline, which was also the first time I had ever spoken about my abuse.”


"At last there is some sound education and empathetic support for individuals and partners impacted by such gross boundary violations.”
