Why PresSafe?

PresSafe is the Presbyterian Church of Queensland’s (PCQ) system of policies, procedures and training relating to safe ministry with children (i.e. anyone under 18 years old).

The PCQ is committed to keeping children safe because it is impelled by the Bible’s teaching on protecting the vulnerable and glorifying the Lord Jesus Christ.

We also have clear legislative responsibilities to protect children within our care.

PresSafe has been developed to ensure we fulfil both of these obligations well. It is vital that all those within our churches – from elders and paid staff to volunteer leaders and helpers – understand their own responsibilities in keeping children safe in every PCQ children’s ministry program or activity.
