Church Times Abuse survivor tells IICSA of her battle for justice


  • Malcolm says:

    What Prof Mcfarlane was saying in evidence about insurers and their solicitors and even more so in her Church Times article of 2015 supports what I said in the comments on Matthew Inesons last entries. The Church is not in charge of its culture. It’s the Insurers (or according to the Professor) it’s Lawyers

  • Helen King says:

    Reading these transcripts daily, it’s just struck me that it was considered OK to have clergy and organists with a history of abuse in churches where there were ‘no children’. But how fixed is a congregation? Surely a new family with children could arrive at any time?? Didn’t anyone think of this?
