The Anglican Diocese of Riverina are committed to making sure our people are equipped with the knowledge and skills they need to create and maintain safe ministry environments.
SAFE MINISTRY TRAINING
Safe Ministry training is compulsory for all Clergy, Parish Councillors, Wardens, SRE Teachers and any church workers or volunteers involved in ministry to children or vulnerable people. However, we encourage all parishioners to undertake this training.
Safe Ministry workshops are currently available online. Please contact your local Clergy for login instructions and password. Invoices will be paid by the Diocesan Registry Office.
Face to face option
In addition to the current online offering, face to face workshops are often offered through other denominations who utilise training which is recognised by the Anglican Diocese of Riverina. Please contact the registry office if you are unsure whether a workshop you wish to undertake is suitable.
Safe Ministry Bible Studies
In 2021 every parish will be conducting a series of bible studies entitled Tales of Trauma and will provide parishioners with the opportunity to look more deeply at abuse in our own scriptures, to reflect on what these stories teach us and to foster a deeper understanding of the impact of abuse on individuals and the nature of trauma.
