Safer Churches Conference

SC confx150

"Transforming Cultures: Listening, Reflecting, Acting"

17 - 18 September 2019 - Mercure Hotel, Brisbane QLD

Register online. Tickets selling fast.

The 9th biennial Safer Churches Conference will be the first conference held by the National Council of Churches in Australia (NCCA) Safe Church Program since the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse recommendations were released in December 2017.

The theme for the conference will provide the framework across the two-day event.​

The key themes explored during the conference will include:​

  • exploring the churches' obligation to the vulnerable, particularly those with disabilities and the elderly
  • being inclusive of Culturally and Linguistically Diverse and Indigenous groups within our community
  • listening to the voices of children and survivors, and understanding 'Trauma Informed Practice' and the complexities of spiritual abuse
  • creating a culture of child safety throughout our Christian organisations.

The NCCA Safer Churches Conference will focus on ensuring Australian churches are informed by key leaders, who are experts in this area in Australia. Information will be delivered on the implementation of the recommendations as well as the very important process of cultural change, both in our churches and religious organisations.
