Creating Safe Spaces Banner

The Baptist Churches of NSW & ACT are committed to creating safe spaces in our local church contexts. We are committed to ministry which is God-honouring, person-valuing, respectful, and free from harm and abuse. Safe ministry is more than legal obligations, it is an outworking of what James 1:27 calls ‘true religion’ – caring for the vulnerable (widows and orphans), and an expression of what is required of all people, that is “to seek justice, love, mercy and walk humbly before our God” (Micah 6:8).
