New course Pressing Red with Press Red on understanding and overcoming gender-based violence
We are excited to be launching Pressing Red! Pressing Red is a new course that aims to help participants understand one of the most important and pressing issues of our world - the global scope of violence against women. Launching in early April 2020, it has been developed in partnership with Redcliffe College and Press Red, a charity that educates the public and churches about worldwide violence against women, empowering and enabling them to make a difference.
Based around Elaine Storkey’s groundbreaking book Scars Across Humanity, Pressing Red is made of six sessions that take roughly nine hours to complete. The sessions include videos from Christian organisations, discussion, a Bible study, practical steps you can take to make a difference, prayer points, and suggested reading. Issues participants will explore during the course include: understanding the global scale of violence against women, thinking through the Christian response, learning about what is already being done to tackle this, and how Christians can help.
