Safe Church Policy

Safe Church Policy

Thrive Church affirm that all people have the right to be emotionally and physically safe, respected, and have their views and opinions valued at all times. We also live in a country that legislates for people’s safety. God calls his body to minister to vulnerable people. God identified classes of vulnerable people who were to be protected and given special care and treatment in society because of their powerlessness (Exodus 22:21-22, Deuteronomy 10:17-19, Jeremiah 22:2-4, James 1:27).

Volunteer & Leaders Code of Conduct

Volunteers & Leaders Code of Conduct

This Leaders’ Code of Conduct (code) outlines ministry appropriate boundaries, rather than assuming that people know the boundaries. It applies to all church leaders/workers - both volunteer and paid. As the leaders of this church we acknowledge that everyone who attends our churches needs to be confident that they will be cared for, nurtured and encouraged as they grow and at the same time, protected from spiritual, physical, & emotional harm.
