Making churches safe placesThe North New South Wales Conference wants to ensure that all of our churches, companies and schools are safe places for everyone. The conference executive committee voted that every church leader, including those who work with children, receive Safe Church Training (see below for details) as part of their commitment to making sure church is a safe place for all.
The NNSW Conference welcomes the Royal Commission into sexual abuse in institutions. We believe that, by casting a light on this issue, churches and organisations can work toward healing and create safer environments going forward into the future.
You can read more about the NNSW Conference's stance on responding to abuse at http://nnsw.adventist.org.au/responding-to-sexual-abuse.
