RNZ – Former members renew bid to have charity status of Gloriavale trust revoked
Radio New Zealand (RNZ) – 02/04/2022
The charities regulator has again been asked to investigate the trust behind the reclusive Gloriavale Christian Community on the South Island’s West Coast.
The Gloriavale Leavers’ Support Trust has written to Charities Services asking it to examine the Christian Church Community Trust as a result of allegations of abuse aired at an Employment Court hearing.
The leavers’ trust wants Gloriavale’s trust stripped of its charitable status on the grounds it is oppressive and does not meet the required standards.
