Stuff – Dark side of Gloriavale ‘needs to be brought to the light’, long-term resident says
By Amber Allott – Stuff – 23/02/2022
Forty of Sharon Ready’s 71 grandchildren still live in the isolated West Coast Christian community of Gloriavale.
Ready still calls it home herself, and has since its inception in North Canterbury, in 1969. But now she has tearfully spoken out against it at an Employment Court hearing, saying the plaintiffs, one of them her own grandson, have been robbed of choice.
“I believe it is my duty as a Christian, to stand up to what has become evil.”
