Safe Church is the way we physically, emotionally and spiritually care for each other.
The Uniting Church affirms that all people are made in the image of God. The Uniting Church commits itself to the care, protection and safety of all people with whom it comes in contact.
As a community of faith, we are committed to providing a safe environment for both children and adults to encounter God, to develop relationships as part of a community and to grow in faith.
Congregations and their members who work with children and young people in the Uniting Church play important parts not only in the support, care, and spiritual nourishment of the next generations, but in actively looking out for their safety and protection.
As a Synod we are committed to promoting a culture of safety and to assisting Congregations and Presbyteries fulfill their obligations through regular training, in the areas of work health and safety, risk and insurance and industrial and employee relations.
