Newtown Erskinevile Anglican Church does not expect you to be perfect to work with children, but it does expect you to be a Christian who exemplifies the positive and transforming power of the gospel in your life. Those who minister with children and youth must be committed to providing a safe ministry environment for children and for this reason we have a number of processes in place to ensure this happens. Once you have completed these steps you still need the approval of the senior minister (Roger Bray) before you can carry out a ministry with Children and Youth.
The Application Process - 3 Steps
1. Complete this form.
3. Give us a copy of your Safe Ministry Certificate. Send to Roger Bray. If you have not completed Safe Ministry Certificate training or you have not done a refresher course in the last three years you will need to complete one. This training is available online and take about 4.5hours to do initial training (2.5 hours for refresher training). The Essentials (1st timer/lapsed) training normally costs $15, but we have sponsored the cost of this training. Contact the office and we will send you the discount code to enter when registering for training. All of the Safe Ministry Training details and registration can be found here. If you have further questions please contact the NEAC office.
If have any concerns related to Child Safely please contact our safe ministry representative Jeremy Watts
Thanks for your partnership in the Gospel which flows out into a commitment to keeping our kids safe.
