The Bible consistently expresses God's concern for the well-being of the vulnerable members of society, children in particular. Christ's words and example provide a strong rationale for churches being responsible for all those in their care. Baptist Church Western Australia takes this responsibility very seriously. Our Safe Church program incorporates an awareness workshop for every person in a leadership role within our churches, from pastors and elders to those in home groups, seniors' ministry, youth group, Sunday school and more.
The workshop covers the following areas:
- Vulnerable People
- Sharing in Ministry
- Duty of Care
- Legal & Insurance Implications
Protecting Vulnerable People
- Understanding abuse
- Responding to abuse
- Protective behaviours
- The right type of people
- Responding to ministry misconduct
- Safe Programs
- Physical environments
- Emotional environments
