    Safe Church Awareness Workshop

    The Baptist Union of Victoria is a member and endorsed Training Partner of the National Council of Churches in Australia Safe Church Training Agreement.

    We provide training for church leaders and volunteers around Victoria and Tasmania via the Safe Church Awareness and Refresher Workshops.

    Safe Church Workshops are facilitated by trained presenters, hosted by local churches and attendance is recognised around the country by many different denominations and organisations.

    Safe Church Awareness Workshops:

    The Safe Church Awareness Workshop is recommended as a pre-requisite to ministry in the local church (or as soon as possible for those already in ministry).

    • Foundations and principles of Safe Church
    • Protecting vulnerable people - definitions, indicators and response procedures
    • Information about training, recruiting and supervising Safe Leaders
    • How to establish and run Safe Environments for church ministry programs

    This workshop also addresses the recent introduction of three new criminal offences relating to child abuse and the upcoming Victorian Child Safe Standards legislation which comes into effect on 1 Jan 2017.
