Safe Ministry Training
Safe Ministry Training Workshops are interactive, awareness raising workshops covering: Christian foundations of safe ministry, duty of care, vulnerable people protection (abuse prevention), due diligence in relation to recruitment and supervision of all church leaders and the management of program risks. As well as how we are to discharge our duty of care, and about the dynamics of power in leadership relationships.
Safe Ministry checks include a Working with Children Check, a National Criminal History Check and Safe Ministry Training as accredited by the National Council of Churches under the Safe Church Training Agreement.
What is the Working With Children Check?
Cleared applicants are subject to ongoing monitoring and relevant new records may lead to the clearance being revoked.
The Working With Children Check is fully portable so it can be used for any paid or unpaid child-related work in NSW for as long as the worker remains cleared.
