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.

Here are a few details about this workshop:

First, registration generally runs for a half hour prior to training and the training runs for a full three hours.

Second, each church needs to purchase one copy of the book Safe Sanctuaries: Reducing the Risk of Child Abuse in the Church by Joy Thornburg Melton. It can be purchased from Discipleship Resources or from Cokesbury as well as other bookstores.
