Volunteers play an essential role in our churches and ministries, as well as in op shops, hospitals and schools.

We require all volunteers to be endorsed according to the following steps:

The level of endorsement required for different roles is outlined in the Safe Church Communities Ordinance.

Designated Drivers

If you are a designated driver for any church program, you will be required to apply for a National Police Check and complete a Drivers Declaration. There may be further requirements depending on your role as a Driver within the program. Check with your Parish Safe Church Communities Coordinator.
