Safe Ministry

Safe Ministry

The Safe Ministry to Children Canon 2017 of the General Synod of the Australian Church of Australia (adopted by the Gippsland Synod in December 2017) requires each Diocese to establish a Diocesan Safe Ministry Authority. The Authority is responsible for safe ministry in the Diocese, including the screening and training of clergy and licensed or authorised church workers.
