The Diocese of Plymouth are holding a LOUDfence at the front of Christ the King Church (Armada Way, Plymouth, PL1 2EN) between 2pm on Wednesday 15th February and 4:30pm on Friday 17th February 2023.
A LOUDfence is a visible display of support and solidarity with those who have been affected by abuse. We want to show survivors of abuse that we hear you, we believe you and that we are here to support you. Attendees will be encouraged to tie a ribbon to a fence which could also include a message of support. Members of the safeguarding team will be present at the LOUDfence during working hours.
Here is a full schedule of events for the LOUDfence:
Wednesday 15th February at 2pm – Opening of the LOUDfence.
Speakers: Fr Mark Skelton (Clergy Lead for Safeguarding) and Antonia Sobocki (LOUDfence).
