You may already know that Fresh Hope has entered into a partnership with the NSW/ACT Baptist Association to partner with them in delivering the Creating Safe Spaces – Safe Church training program.
Creating Safe Spaces is an excellent safe church training program, complying with all current legislation, and even includes responses to the recent Royal Commission into Institutional Child Sexual Abuse. It is endorsed by the SCTA, who are the peak body for safe church training in Australia.
We will be hosting a mid-week CCS course in November for anybody who has not yet undertaken training of this type. Endorsed ministers and SRE teachers must complete safe church training every three years, however all youth and children’s volunteers, plus board members and elders are strongly encouraged to complete this training.

The course is completed in a two-stage process:
- An online Creating Safe Spaces course. This course can be completed in one sitting, or over several stages. It is the knowledge base that our people need to understand and realise. This online course costs $10 per person. Register here for the online component.
- A face-to-face Creating Safe Spaces workshop. This is a 3.5-hour workshop, where people have an opportunity to learn further and discuss their learnings from the online course. The workshop is $25 per person. There is an additional 30min section for church eldership/board members and policymakers. Register here for the workshop component.
