Religion Shouldn't Hurt started this petition

On 23 March, Hillsong’s Board announced their commitment to an independent review into the Church's governance structure and processes. This comes after the Church's founder, Brian Houston, resigned amid allegations of sexual misconduct.

This is not Hillsong’s first 'independent' review. Following allegations of a sexual assault in 2021, the Church announced an investigation into the policies and practises of Hillsong International Leadership College. One year on, they have not released the review’s findings to the public.

Religion Shouldn't Hurt is a coalition of religious trauma survivors and allies standing together to tell our stories and spark social change.

We want to ensure Hillsong survivor voices are really heard this time. We are petitioning Hillsong’s Board and its appointed independent reviewers to engage with us (Religion Shouldn't Hurt) and other Pentecostal support groups to allow former and current members' voices to be heard. Without this guarantee, any investigation will be hollow and fail to deliver significant long-term change to protect and safeguard Hillsong attendees into the future.

Sign the petition today to show your support for Hillsong survivor voices being included in the Church Board's independent review.
