Safe Ministry

City on a Hill is committed to being a movement of churches that actively lives out our love to God and to our neighbour.

We have zero tolerance for any type of abuse of any person, particularly abuse of children and vulnerable adults.

We want our churches to be communities where children and families are welcome and participate fully. Where children and young people are fully engaged and have every opportunity to flourish and grow, without barriers that hinder or harm.

The following policies help us to fulfil our commitment to make our communities safe places for children.

Faithfulness in Service

Faithfulness in Service is the national Anglican code for personal behaviour and the practice of pastoral ministry for pastors, church workers and volunteers. It is an important statement about how we seek to function and relate to others. It provides us with information about what is acceptable and what is not acceptable and with practical ways those standards can be achieved.
