Commitment to Child Safety

At the Church of the Ascension we follow Christ in being a caring Church welcoming of all, extending his love and invitation of new life to all comers. In ministry to children, young people and vulnerable adults we are committed to providing an environment that is physically, emotionally and spiritually safe and supportive. This includes a culture of child-safety and of inclusivity for people of cultural and/or linguistically diverse backgrounds, people of Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander background, people with disability or any other specific group.
