Safe Church

Uniting Church in SA Safe Place Statement

'The Uniting Church in Australia believes that all people are made in the image of God and as such we should accept every individual regardless of race, age, creed or gender.

As a Christian community, we believe that God reaches out to us in love and acceptance and that our relationships with each other should express love and respect and not be abused.

As a community of faith we are committed to providing a place in society where human beings can explore what it means to be made in the image of God.

As an expression of this commitment, the Uniting Church in Australia recognises its responsibility to provide worshipping and pastoral communities that are free from abuse and that provide safe environments for all people to explore and express their faith in the Gospel.'

Safe Church promotes and assists the Uniting Church community with relevant information about ensuring a safe physical, emotional and spiritual environment for us all. This includes training in the following areas: Called to Care, Child Safe Environments, and Code of Ethics as well as a suite of policies and documents for use in our church communities.
