Safe Church

The Safe Church program ensures that our churches are places of safety from harm of misconduct that can occur in situations when there is an imbalance of power. The Safe Church program and a Criminal Record check are required for parish council members, paid staff, envelope secretary, children & youth workers, pastoral visitors, and all others who handle money and volunteer staff.

If you volunteer in the church, you may be asked to either take a Safe Church Training Program and/or get a Criminal Record check. These are Diocesan-wide requirements for all churches in the Diocese.
