Safe Spaces (Church) Information

Deniliquin Baptist Church is committed to providing places, services and programs that promote physical, emotional and spiritual health and safety and model the love of Christ to all whom we have contact with, particularly children, young people and vulnerable adults.

The Church is committed to creating safe spaces where people can be confident that they will be cared for, nurtured and encouraged as they grow and at the same time, protected from spiritual, physical, sexual and emotional abuse.

We aim to:

  1. minimise the risk of abuse, ministry misconduct and the misuse of positional power within the church.
  2. ensure that all cases of suspected abuse and ministry misconduct are handled in a consistent, unbiased and thorough manner.
  3. ensure that leaders and programs are safe.
  4. that all people are respected and valued irrespective of their gender, age, country of origin, cultural heritage, scio-economic background or ability.
  5. provide a safe and healthy work environment for employees, voluntary workers and visitors and will endeavour to ensure that these people do nothing to place themselves or members of the public at risk of injury or illness.
