Safe Place Gatherings
These gatherings happen once or twice a year and are planned by our Safe Place Team. They are for anyone passionate about and participating in church life. We believe that we all have a responsibility to promote and keep safe spaces no matter our role, so please invite both leaders and volunteers from your church as you see fit.
Safe Place Gathering Event
June 14, 5:30 - 8:30 pm | Dinner at 6:00 pm | Fort Garry MB | Online Available
Working with children or youth can be challenging on its own. Throw in families who hold different values or systems of belief, perhaps based on socio-economic or cultural differences, and we have a whole set of new challenges, challenges that many of us are not (yet) prepared for. In this event/gathering, we will spend intentional time discussing a few of the ways that this reality can present some challenges for our ministries, with specific attention to our Safe Place Policy.
Examples of this can include:
Language barriers impacting degree of communication
Different values around discipline
Different caregiving capacities – how do we define neglect?
Guardians/Parents who are not available or present – how does this impact releasing kids after events or getting permission forms handed in?
