Child Protection

Child Protection guidelines in GPCNZ


At the 2023 General Assembly it was agreed (motion 25-23) that each particular and mission church must have a Child Protection Policy. That where a church does not have its own policy and procedures documents, the following documents: Child Protection Policy, Child Protection Procedures Manual and Recruitment and Screening Procedures Manual are offered as templates for use by churches.

Please note, these documents may be revised from time to time, so session clerks may want to check for periodic updates.
