Domestic and family violence is a serious and widespread problem in Cairns and around Australia. At CrossPoint, we believe the church should be on the front lines of helping the oppressed and advocating for the vulnerable.
Speak up for those who have no voice,
for the justice of all who are dispossessed.
Speak up, judge righteously,
and defend the cause of the oppressed and needy.
–Proverbs 31:8-9 (CSB)
CrossPoint ministers to those facing domestic and family violence related matters through a number of initiatives.
