Domestic Abuse

Domestic Abuse affects 1 in 5 adults (men or women)  in this country at some point in their lives. If you are struggling with this, you can discuss it with any of the church team listed above and your concerns will be treated seriously. However we do recommend that you speak to the Surrey Against Domestic Abuse Helpline on  01483 776822  or look at their website  https://www.surreyagainstda.info/
