The writing of this thesis is to investigate the role that the church plays for the children living with conflicting parents. This investigation takes us both into the role of Gcuwa Circuit and the Presbyterian Church of Africa in the fight against traumatized children because of parentís conflict.

The researcherís question through this thesis is to find out the role of the church as it seeks to take care for those affected children. This thesis is to enhance the response of the churches and societies to fight against abuse of children. It has attempted to explore new theological perspectives and utilise the available ones, which have already been dealing with issues that address childrenís trauma as a result of conflicting parents. The study also seeks to encourage church ministers, pastors and lay leaders to provide the much needed leadership in the fight against childrenís trauma and its accompanying social problems of injustices, culture and gender inequality. The church has the pastoral responsibilities for ensuring that all children enjoy their full rights. Nevertheless effective therapy and pastoral care normally transcends all these barriers.
