Welcome as you gear up with Essentials for your Safe Ministry journey!

This course is designed for those who seek to be involved in any way in ministry to children, youth and other vulnerable people and have not already completed approved safe ministry training. This includes any person who is in a leadership role in the church. It may also include any person who is alone with a vulnerable adult for the purpose of ministry e.g. transporting a vulnerable person.

If you have not previously completed approved safe ministry training or your training has expired by more than 30 days you should complete the Safe Ministry Essentials course.
