Safe Church Training for 2021

We are excited to announce a new Safe Church training partnership with the Baptist Association of NSW & ACT. Creating Safe Spaces will replace the previous six-hour Safe Church Awareness and Refresher Workshops.

Creating Safe Spaces (CSS) will significantly increase the accessibility of our Safe Church training. CSS training requires participants to complete an online individual training module (in one’s own time) and then attend a three-hour workshop.  CSS workshops will be conducted via Zoom during COVID restrictions, and via Zoom or in person after restrictions are lifted. 

All churches will be given detailed information about the new CSS training prior to the end of the year, including how to access the online training module and book in for workshops.
If you have any questions or would like resources related to Safe Church matters please contact Vicky Dyer to discuss.

The Baptist Union of Victoria aims to empower its members with resources and advice that will help them to make their church a safe place for all people.

We do this in several ways:

  • Keeping churches informed of regulatory changes and providing explanatory resources where needed
  • Providing advice about how to put safe church policies and procedures into practice in the real world
  • Offering training for a variety of local church roles and levels of responsibility

Through the provision of this support, we endeavour to make all Baptist churches a safe place for all people.
