NO PLACE FOR VIOLENCE HERE RESOURCES
We have produced a variety of resources for your church to use, most of them downloadable but some available only in hardcopy format. We recommend you start by downloading and reading through the campaign overview, then purchase the hardcopy resources you require and download the digital resources.
Some of the resources were produced by BaptistCare NSW & ACT as part of a resource they badge as “More Than Skin Deep”. These are marked with an asterix. These resources retain the Baptist Care New South Wales logo and “More Than Skin Deep” badging. We are in the process of making some of these available with Baptistcare Australia branding for those.
