The ‘Church as a Refuge’ conference was born out of a desire to help churches better understand power, control and abuse within the church. Jacqui Wright and Cliff Turner (both health-care professionals) planned and hosted the conference. This conference was not just academic, but real, personal and tragic for so many involved. Having benefitted from the teaching of Dr Dianne Langberg, Jacqui wanted the wider church to benefit from her teaching too.
