Doing ministry safely in our churches is becoming more and more complex and demanding. And yet we cannot – for the sake of the vulnerable people in our care and the gospel – drop our guard and let our standards slip.
Safe Ministry in the local church involves everyone in those churches, but there are key people who are at the front line of the battle to keep children and vulnerable adults safe. Those people are ministry staff, key lay leaders and Safe Ministry Representatives.
At the Diocesan end, the Safe Ministry Team (ODSM) is here to resource and assist those in our churches and organisations by keeping those key people informed of changes in Diocesan policy, State legislation and the like.
Frontline – A Safe Ministry Podcast is another tool to assist in that communication. It is designed for those people literally at the ministry front line, people who have to help set or implement Safe Ministry policy and practice in a church.
