Called to Care

Called to Care Orientation Sessions 3 hours duration

For ministry to be effective, we need to incorporate safe and best practices in leadership, programs, actions, our behaviours and facilities. Called to Care promotes and assists the Uniting Church with relevant information about ensuring a safe physical, emotional and spiritual environment for all people.

The expectation is for members of Church Council and key leaders from congregations to attend. These training sessions provide an opportunity for congregations to gather together to share the experiences of the broader church.

Please note that all training is on hold due to COVID-19 risk management measures.

Orientation sessions (3 hours):
