COMPREHENSIVE SAFE CHURCH TRAINING is designed for ordained and lay people who have not yet attended a safe church training in the Episcopal Church in Connecticut (ECCT) or it has been more than 5 years since you have attended. This is a three hour in-person training with the online component being completed before a certificate of completion is issued.

Topics include:

  •  Prevention, identification and response to elder abuse

  •  Sexual Harassment· Guidelines for Ordained Ministry (many of which apply to lay ministry)

ECCT Safe Church Training is grounded in our call to seek and serve Christ in all persons and respect the dignity of every human being. This training provides an opportunity to increase and enhance our ability to live out our Baptismal Covenant within our communities of faith and in the world beyond. All adults engaged in ministry in our diocese are welcome to attend safe church training. There is no fee to attend. All training sessions are handicapped accessible unless otherwise indicated. Parish leadership should specify who is required to attend safe church training from each parish.
