This particular Safe Church Training event is on a weekday and geared for church professionals and those employed by parishes but it is open to anyone.
Safe Church training is designed to increase awareness regarding sexual misconduct and abuse of power, to outline steps toward preventing abuse, to offer ways to intervene when misconduct occurs and to equip anyone in a position of parish leadership with ways of healing and rebuilding the body of Christ. Training is required of all clergy, diocesan employees and congregational employees, and is also highly recommended for all serving in a congregation on a regular basis.
