Recently released court documents provide a candid insight into life and religious beliefs at Gloriavale.
John Ready and other unnamed plaintiffs are taking a civil suit against The Christian Church Community Trust, commonly known as Gloriavale, as well as trustees and shareholders associated with the community.
The High Court has recently allowed publication of certain documents relating to the case for the first time.
In a five-page position statement on behalf of The Christian Church Community Trust, its trustees and the other defendants, the public gets a rare glimpse into religious expectations and life at Gloriavale.
