No children in your congregation?
If your congregation has no children in regular attendance, you may not be required to complete the Child Safety Standards requirements. Instead, you may be eligible to complete a 'Congregations without Children - Child Safety Assurance'. Please contact us to ask if this is appropriate for your congregation. If you are eligible, click on the green button to download the document.
Please visit our Resources page and download the documents to learn more about the Standards and their implementation.
If you have any questions about the LCA Child Safety Standards for Congregations, please do not hesitate to contact the Professional Standards Officer in your District, or Mary-Ann Carver or Nicole Hall at the Churchwide Office on 08 8267 7300 or 0491 011 643.
