Abuse and Harassment are NEVER OK
The Anglican Church has a confidential procedure to handle concerns or complaints about people in ministry. The Anglican Bishops of New Zealand have stated clearly that all such complaints will be taken seriously. Further, they state that any form of harassment or abuse is unacceptable to the Church. Everyone deserves to be treated with dignity and respect.
