Being Safe at Church

Being Safe at Church

We desire for all people involved with St Kilda Elsternwick Baptist Church to be emotionally and physically safe, respected and valued.  We have a particular responsibility to protect children and vulnerable people.  We have a Safe Church Policy developed in accordance with the Baptist Union of Victoria which outlines current practices for pastors, leaders, members and participants to provide a safe environment and carry out our legal responsibilities.

Safe Church Policy – including links to relevant documents and forms

Our Safe Church Concerns person is a respected church member who is available to provide support to anyone who does not feel safe or has concerns about the safety of others at St Kilda Elsternwick Baptist Church.  You can email the Safe Church Concerns Person at

The Church administrator also serves as our Safety Officer, responsible for OH&S in the church facilities.
