An initiative of Uniting Church in Australia
SAFE CHURCH POLICY 2019
Lighthouse affirms that all people have the right to be emotionally and physically safe, respected, and have their views and opinions valued at all times.
We live in a country that legislates for people's safety
God calls His body to minister to vulnerable people. God identified classes of vulnerable people who were to be protected and given special care and treatment in society because of their powerlessness. (Ex 22:21-22, Duet 10:17-19, Jer 22:2-4, James 1:27)
Our policy has been developed to help us live out our Biblical mandate, responsibilities under Australian legislation and make our church a safe place for all.
A Safe Church Team has been appointed to establish and maintain:
Safe Church programs
Work Health and Safety (WHS)
Incident and Emergency procedures
If you would like to know more, or have any safety concerns please contact the Safe Church Team by emailing us: safechurches @lighthousegeraldton.com
