Safe Church Workshop Oct 27 2019

Safe Church Awareness Workshop Sunday 27 October, 11.30am after Worship

To all congregation members

Church Council invites you to a Safe Church Awareness Workshop on Sunday 27 October 2019 at 11.30 after the service. 

In November 2018 we held our first Safe Church Awareness Workshop and 21 people attended.  A further workshop is now planned, for new leaders and for any interested members of the congregation.  Such workshops are designed to provide leaders and congregational members with knowledge and understanding of our Safe Church policy and procedures. It is a valuable opportunity to understand the importance of striving to be a Safe Church in our community.  Each of us is an important part of our success.  All local appointed leaders – largely those who are required to have Working with Children Police Checks – are required to attend such a workshop. 

This invitation is extended to all church members who would be interested. It is highly relevant to us all.  We have engaged a facilitator who will lead the workshop and Ann Wilkinson will organise practical matters.   The name of the facilitator is Barb Brook.  Barb is an experienced safe church trainer for the Synod and looks forward to meeting you all at the workshop.  She works part time in the Banyule Network co-ordinating their community programs, and part time at La Trobe Melbourne.

If you are able to attend, please add your name and contact details to the list on the notice board or let Ann Wilkinson know direct. Ann Wilkinson, our Safe Church Contact Person, is organising the workshop and is happy to let you know more about it.
