Safe Church Awareness Training is for all Church Councillors, Elders, Ministers and anyone working with children. The Uniting Church gives a high priority to safety in the churches. Therefore, safe church awareness workshops have been a priority for approximately 15 years. Currently, we have limited places in four workshops in the Riverina and one in the Sydney metro area. These workshops help us to have safe people, safe leaders and safe environments.
Safe Church awareness training is scheduled for 22 May 2021 at 26 Cooper St, Cootamundra (in Dickson Hall). Please arrive by 9:00am for 9:30am start
To register for upcoming workshops go to https://nswact.uca.org.au/safe-church-unit/safe-church-training/
Please note that this training will soon be self directed and online. A new curriculum is being developed by the National Safe Church Unit, and we hope to make it available before June 2021.
However, a number of Face to face workshops have been scheduled. These workshops address the training needs for people requiring either initial or refresher training. The Refresher training is only available for people whose last training was within three years. Outside of three years requires attending the full course as there have been significant changes in recent years.
