At St Aidan’s we want to be a church that reflects God’s love and care for all people, especially the vulnerable. We believe that God has made himself very clear about how we should treat one another. In the book of Genesis God says that all people are created in His image, with inherent worth and dignity, and all people should be treated accordingly (Genesis 1:27; Matthew 22:36-40)

Practising Safe Ministry means we are proactive about protecting those who are vulnerable, and we take seriously our responsibility to care for those who may be subject to abuse.

All leaders and those working with children and young people require ‘Breaking the Silence’ training, as well as a current Working with Children Check verified by the Conduct Protocol Unit (CPU) of the Presbyterian Church of NSW.

Carin Cumberlege is our church representative overseeing all aspects of Safe Ministry. She would be pleased to speak with you about questions or concerns you may have.

Concerns and Complaints

We are exhorted in the Bible to make every effort to be at peace, however within the church occasions of conflict will arise from time to time. To assist us in working through these matters in a godly manner we have adopted the following guide developed by our Presbytery:
