Safer Churches

Life Unlimited Church’s commitment to Children and Young People

LifeUC is passionate about seeing our Children and Young People step into their God–given destiny. We therefore give the highest priority to ensuring, as far as we are able, that they are provided with programs, activities and leaders that reflect our desire to safeguard their well-being.

As such, LifeUC actively supports the Australian Christian Churches (ACC) SAFER CHURCHES initiative and the ACC Safer Churches Policy and Guidelines, in line with ACT Government legislation. This ensures that LifeUC is always working towards adopting ‘best practice’ regarding child protection initiatives and workplace health and safety requirements. The complete ACC Child Protection Policy and the LifeUC Vulnerable Person Protection Policy can be accessed via the buttons below.

Australian Christian Churches want each local church to be a safe place for everyone – spiritually, physically and emotionally. To achieve this, we agree that at Life Unlimited Church we should:
• Respect each other
• Care for each other’s safety
• Report concerns about abuse and/or misconduct
• Report hazards or concerns about property safety
