June 3
Safe Church Training

It is the charge of every Christian to respect the dignity of every human being, to that end we offer Safe Church Training.

Safe Church Training protects not only volunteers and employees, but also those under their charge. By raising the awareness of leaders, everyone is safer.

Safe Church consists of two courses: Child Sexual Abuse Prevention and Adult Sexual Harassment & Exploitation Prevention. Volunteers such as Sunday School teachers, youth leaders, and youth camp staff are required to take “A Safe Place for Children.” All clergy and employees of the diocese and its congregations are required to take both courses.

The next classes will be held:

  • Saturday, June 3, at Christ Episcopal Church in Lockport.  The Church: A Safe place for Children will run from 9 a.m. to Noon. The Church: A Safe Place for Adults will run from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Register online!
