Safe Ministry at St Bede's
St Bede's is committed to the physical, emotional and spiritual welfare and protection of all people. We are particularly committed to ensuring the safety of children and vulnerable people in our community.
We have a zero tolerance approach to misconduct and abuse. All of our paid and volunteer children’s and youth workers are subject to Anglican Diocesan Safe Ministry protocols and ongoing training. This includes ensuring that those who work with under 18s are not ‘prohibited persons’, and hold a current “Working with Children Check” clearance. They are also required to undertake Safe Ministry Training or equivalent, and to complete a refresher course every three years.
The national Anglican Code of Conduct, Faithfulness in Service, applies to all office bearers and leaders in our parish whether paid or voluntary.
Our Safe Ministry Representative is Emily Adcock.
