CCVT is developing a new suite of policies dealing with safety and related matters. CCVT will adopt new policies as an organisation, and policies that will apply to Churches of Christ in Victoria and Tasmania as a movement, and also provide template policies for churches and agencies as required.

This page will be updated as policies, templates, and updates become available.
