Welcome to www.safechurches.org.au

The Safe Church Program is an initiative of the National Council of Churches in Australia’s and consists of the Safe Church Awareness Workshops, Safe Church Network, and the Safer Churches conferences.


We have taken the decision, in consultation with our trainers, that they will cancel training and all face to face training events in line with their church safety advice around social gatherings. We feel that this step is necessary, given increasing community concern, rising infection rates and experience from overseas where stronger social isolation measures have had success in slowing infection rates. 

We see this as an opportunity to be creative and innovative around our service delivery. In the interim period during COVID-19, the Safe Church Program will offer a revised version of our Safe Church Workshops via Zoom.

Thank you to all our lead trainers around Australia that have worked with us to fine tune our content and deliver zoom sessions.

If you are in one of our member churches and your workshop has been cancelled, please check with your Safe Church Coordinator or contact us at This email address is being protected from spambots.

The Safe Church Awareness Workshops facilitate quality, sustainable, accessible, safe church workshops for local church leaders.  The workshops are an initiative of the National Council of Churches in Australia (NCCA) with both NCCA and non-NCCA churches participating in the workshops. 

The Safe Church Network is committed to leadership so to ensure as far as possible that Australian Churches are physically, emotionally and spiritually safe for children and vulnerable adults. They provide guidance in safeguarding for churches and respond to requests from the NCCA executive.

The Safer Churches conference is a biennial conference that is run to provide professional development opportunities, support and network opportunities to those involved in safe church ministry. Our next conference is on 17 and 18 September 2019 at the Mecure Hotel, Brisbane. Click here for more information
