Welcome to www.safechurches.org.au

The Safe Church Program is an initiative of the National Council of Churches in Australia‚Äôs and consists of the Safe Church Training Agreement (SCTA), Safe Church Network, and the Safer Churches conferences.


We have taken the decision in consultation with our SCTA trainers that they will cancel training events in line with their church safety advice around social gatherings, this includes all safe church awareness workshops. 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 are currently looking into solutions for our members should the situation continue over a period of months. We see this as an opportunity to be creative and innovative around our service delivery.

The Safe Church Training Agreement (SCTA) facilitates quality, sustainable, accessible, safe church workshops for local church leaders.  The SCTA is an initiative of the National Council of Churches in Australia (NCCA) with both NCCA and non-NCCA churches participating in the agreement. 

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 

The Safe Church Program sends out a monthly email newsletter. You are welcome to sign up to this newsletter here
