Safe Church Policy
We’re committed to partnering with parents and providing meaningful, welcoming and fun experiences in high quality, safe environments.
We want to ensure that when children and young people interact with the ministries and activities of Merrylands Baptist Church (MBC) that they feel safe, physically, emotionally and spiritually. The NSW government has introduced ten safety standards for organisations that include children and young people. We are committed to implementing these standards continuously in our community.
Every leader and volunteer holds a valid Working With Children Check and we use strict screening procedures. We have a process for children and young people, leaders and volunteers to be able to report any concerns they may have, in a timely and appropriate manner, including reporting concerns to the relevant authorities.
Training is provided to our leaders and volunteers to understand their responsibilities, to ensure that MBC is a safe place.
If you have any concerns regarding the safety of a child or young person at MBC, or any other concerns about safety, please inform Pastor Bob Dennis or one of our other Safe Church Concerns team members Jon Terry or Rae Goth.
