Safe Ministry Awareness Workshops
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 Workshops are compulsory for all Clergy, Parish Councillors, Wardens, SRE Teachers and any church workers or volunteers involved in ministry to children or vulnerable people.
Upcoming face-face workshops will be held:
Start time: 10.00am
Finish time for Licenced Lay Ministers and general volunteers : 2.30pm
Finish Time for Clergy, Parish Councillors, and Church Wardens: 3.30pm
Clergy, Parish Councillors and Wardens are required to attend an interactive safe ministry governance workshop immediately following the awareness workshop. This will provide you with valuable information to assist you in fulfilling your Safe Ministry obligations as leaders in your Parishes.
What to do if I can’t attend?
As always, our Diocesan church workers and volunteers are welcome to attend Safe Ministry workshops hosted by other Churches, so long as they are part of the National Council of Churches Safe Church Program. Information on the Safe Church Program included upcoming workshops can be found here.
If you do attend a workshop run by another church please ensure you provide the details of the workshop to your local Parish and the Dicoesan Office.
