Safe Church Training

New online Safe Church Induction and Refresher training


Bendigo Diocese has now moved to Online Induction and Refresher training through Safe Ministry Resources.

Both are now available.   The Induction training is for all who need to do the training but have not yet been able to do so. The Refresher is available for all those who have already completed a full Safe Church Awareness Workshop in the last three years and are due to complete a refresher workshop this year. This online training replaces the SCTA workshops.

Below you will find links for both induction and refresher user guides. Click on the user guide you require and follow the instructions with in.

You will need to register using your email address and a password.

The cost will be $30 for the Induction training and $15 for the refresher. This is paid online by credit card.

You can move through several modules opening a variety of documents and engaging in scenarios that will assist you in exploring various ministry contexts.

You can start and stop by logging in and out as you need. When you conclude the training, you will be able to print out a Certificate.

The Diocese will be provided with a report each month on who has completed the induction or Refresher training. You can log in at any time to access any of these documents and refresh your memory.

For those unable to engage in online training there will be other options once we are able to gather more freely. As soon as that is possible you will be advised.

The training cover:

  • duty of care, codes of conduct, power, transparency and accountability
  • protecting vulnerable people, indicators of abuse, responding to abuse and protective behaviors
  • training, recruiting and supervising leaders
  • how to establish and run safe church ministry programs (risk management)

The Anglican Diocese of Bendigo encourages all church leaders to complete a Safe Church Awareness Workshop every three years.
