Training

Are your leaders trained and equipped to ensure your community is a safe place for everyone?

CCVT recommends that all leaders and volunteers including pastors, elders, deacons, leadership teams, ministry leaders, pastoral carers and those working with children and youth attend a Safe Church Awareness Workshop as a minimum training requirement for doing ministry.

Topics include:

  • Foundations and principles of a 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 full day workshop is facilitated by trained presenters, hosted by local churches, and attendance is recognised by members of the National Council of Churches in Australia Safe Church Training Agreement.

See below for workshops hosted by CCVT Affiliates.  For a full list of all available workshops in Vic/Tas go to the NCCA calendar.

If you would like more information, or are interested in hosting a workshop at your church, please contact Kylie Kendall,  Safe Places Coordinator, at safeplaces@churchesofchrist.org.au or call 03 9488 8800.

PLEASE NOTE: These workshops are not suitable for people under the age of 15.
