The Safe Sanctuaries Workshop is designed for congregations who don’t have a written Safe Sanctuaries Policy. The workshop prepares a core team of 4 – 5 to work with the congregation to write a policy, as well as providing information on how to train trustees, teachers, parents and pastors on the implementation of that policy.

Snow date: January 23, 2016

Taught by Cassandra Negri.
