The Church is committed to providing places, services and programs that promote physical, emotional and spiritual health and safety and model the love of Christ to all whom we have contact with, particularly children, young people and vulnerable adults.
The Church has adopted the Safe Church Policy to:
help us live out our biblical mandate to ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, mind and strength and love your neighbour as yourself’ (Mark 12:30-31);
implement the 10 Child Safe Standards;
provide a framework to inform the provision of safe environments and programs for children, young people and vulnerable adults; and
meet our legal obligations in relation to:
• staff and volunteers engaged in Child-related Work and
• reporting matters, including Child Sexual Abuse, Sexual Misconduct, and Reportable Conduct involving a Child, to government authorities.
The Safe Church Policy outlines the commitment of the church to principles in various areas. More detail regarding the practical implementation of these commitments is available in the relevant procedures and guidelines
This Policy applies to:
all Church Leadership, staff and volunteers;
all people who are involved in or attend the Church and its programs;
