Safe Ministry Training

The Anglican Diocese of Newcastle is building safe churches to ensure church is safe for all to attend.

All people working with children or youth in ministry, including ministers and assistant ministers, are required to complete Safe Ministry Training. Safe Ministry Training is part of the Diocesan Safe Ministry Ordinance.  It requires that everyone involved in ministry to children and young people must undertake Safe Ministry training every three years.
