Safe Ministry

Thankyou for considering serving at Christ Church Cathedral. We believe that we are serving God and one another and place a high value on each of our roles accordingly. The focus of safe ministry is ensuring that all those who represent the church do all they can to promote the spiritual, physical and emotional well-being of people they serve, with special regard to age, ability, cultural heritage and circumstances. It is essential, therefore, that all our workers are clear about their responsibilities for keeping themselves and others safe. At CCC, we are committed to providing a safe workplace for workers as well as a safe place for people to worship God. Keeping people safe is everybody’s business!

How do I become a Volunteer?

Safe ministry training is the way by which we train and equip our workers to be able to identify and respond to risks of harm, particularly to the needs of the vulnerable people in our church community. As well as training, we also provide an appropriate level of screening for the different roles that our workers serve in. We are part of the Anglican Diocese of the Northern Territory, and the tables below outline the requirements within our Diocese for our various worker roles. To become a volunteer for one of these roles, please organise to meet with the Dean so that you can discuss the role and requirements. Paperwork for the screens will be provided during this interview.
