Responding to the TV investigation, Hillsong accused producers of "false statements" and "misrepresentations" and said it "vehemently denies there was a lack of transparency or 'hiding' by its leadership.

In an online statement, church leaders then produce a list of the inaccuracies and call for a full redaction to be read out on air.

In further denial of wrongdoing, the statement reads: "Hillsong continues to stand by the statements it has made regarding this matter including that Hillsong has diligently implemented recommendations of the Royal Commission and continues to work toward best practice in its Safe Church implementation strategies."
