Safe Church Progam
Welcome to the Pragram Portal
We affirm that all people have the right to be emotionally and physically safe, respected, and have their views and opinions valued at all times. We also live in a country that legislates for people’s safety.
The Safe Church Program combines all diocesan action to keep its members safe under one initiative managed by the Diocesan Safe Church Officer.
God calls his body to minister to vulnerable people. God identified classes of vulnerable people who were to be protected and given special care and treatment in society because of their powerlessness (Ex. 22:21-22, Deut. 10:17-19, Jer. 22:2-4, James 1:27)
Our Safe Church Program aims to:
- Minimise the risk of abuse, ministry misconduct and the misuse of positional power.
- Ensure that all cases of suspected abuse and ministry misconduct are handled thoroughly.
- Ensure that all members are are safe.
- Ensure that all people are respected and valued.
