A big “thank-you” to all of you in our District who have shown your commitment to Safe Church, by your hard work and engagement with our established LCA safety practices. Thank you also to those who have engaged in Safe Church training this year, either for the first time, or by way of a Refresher, in both face-to-face workshops or via the online platform.
2022 is shaping up to be a very busy year for Safe Church.
The LCA Child Safety Standards will be rolled out next year and every congregation in the LCA will be required to work with these, including congregations which do not regularly have children in attendance. We are working very hard to provide as much resourcing and support as possible for congregations.
Safe Church training remains an effective method of informing and equipping our members for service. Workshops already scheduled for the first part of the year are as follows:
Saturday 22nd Jan, Level One at Box Hill (registrations opening this week)
Saturday 29th Jan, Level Two at Moorabbin
Saturday 5th Feb, at Level One at Warrnambool
Sunday 13th Feb Level One Refresher at Natimuk (registrations not yet open)
Saturday 26th Feb Level One at Stawell
Thursday 3rd/Friday 4th March Level one at Tabor (registrations not yet open)
Saturday 5th March, Level Two at Tabor (registrations not yet open)
Saturday 19th March Refresher at Nhill (registrations not yet open)
