As a family-friendly church we want everyone to feel safe, no matter what age they are. We seek to follow the laws set by the government while also living out the principles held forth in the Bible. Principles like the inherent dignity of each person, the need to especially protect children and the defenceless, and the importance of transparency and integrity for the leadership.
The Presbyterian Church of Victoria has a Safe Church Unit that supports us in meeting these aims. We are bound by the Safe Church Policy and Code of Conduct and we look to the Safe Church Unit for guidance on procedure and practice.
If you have a concern that relates to Safe Church, you can contact our local Safe Church Representative or you can contact the Safe Church Unit directly.
