Child Protection and the Church

The Warehouse has a resource available which describes the principles and provisions of the Children’s Act and its relevance to churches in their work with children. These are some of the topics that are covered:

 Background to the Children’s Act, its aim and purpose
 Biblical Principles
 General Principles for children
 Who can work with children
 What to do when you suspect a child being abused or neglected
 What to do if a child is injured or dies while in the care of the church

In the midst of continuous atrocities against children in our communities, The Warehouse will be hosting three events on 9 August (Women’s Day) and Saturday 12 August, on the responsibility of the church towards children.

9 August 9h00 - 15h30: Presentation on the Children’s Act and its application to churches

12 August 09h30 - 12h30:  Gathering of church- and children’s ministry leaders to share experiences and thoughts around the responsibility of the church in addressing this scourge

12 August 14h00 - 17h00 Repeat of the Children’s Act workshop, but in a shortened form.
The book, Children, Church and the Law will be on sale at a cost of R300.

There is no charge for the workshops themselves, but donations will be much appreciated, both towards the cost of refreshments, and towards the cost of the book so that we can subsidise churches who cannot afford it.

Please make you booking for any of the events by phoning 021-7611168, emailing .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address), or via Quicket.
