Ethical Ministry Foundations | 2-day Course

Event Details

This is a 2-day training course (run over two consecutive days in February) focusing on what it means to be accountable within the Uniting Church in Australia.

Those who offer leadership in the church need to be aware of what it means to be accountable within the Uniting Church in Australia.

The Ethical Ministry course teaches about power, boundaries, pastoral responsibilities and the church’s Regulations and Code of Ethics.
