Safe Ministry Journey


The Safe Ministry Journey Policy documents represent a holistic approach to safe ministry. These documents are aimed at informing people across all levels of leadership and church engagement to help ensure greater awareness, transparency and accountability within our churches and to help foster a culture of safe ministry at all levels of the church.

The three tiers of the Safe Ministry Journey documents are set out below, along with the descriptions of the people or groups of people who should be using them.
Each document is available for browsing here, or downloadable as a PDf document to use in your church or ministry.
