Safe Church promotes & assists the Uniting Church community to ensure a safe physical, emotional & spiritual environment for us all. 

This includes training in the following areas: Called to Care, Child Safe Environments, and Code of Ethics as well as a suite of policies and documents for use in our church communities.

We pay our respects to the First Nations people of the country in which we live
and acknowledge elders – past, present and emerging.

We acknowledge that children, entrusted to us, did not always receive the care they deserved and we acknowledge the ongoing impact and trauma of the separation of children from families and communities.


Uniting Church Safe Place Statement

The Uniting Church in Australia believes that all people are made in the image of God and as such we should accept every individual regardless of race, age, creed or gender. As a Christian community, we believe that God reaches out to us in love and acceptance and that our relationships with each other should express love and respect and not be abused.

As a community of faith we are committed to providing a place in society where human beings can explore what it means to be made in the image of God. As an expression of this commitment, the Uniting Church in Australia recognises its responsibility to provide worshipping and pastoral communities that are free from abuse and that provide safe environments for all people to explore and express their faith in the Gospel.


The Code of Ethics refresher sessions are provided for all Ministers and those in ministry placements. It is usual practice that individuals participate in refreshers following completion of the full Code of Ethics “The Essentials” course.
