Since the terrorist attacks in Christchurch, we have been made aware of the need for more robust procedures to be put in place to keep our churches safe.
These guidelines have been developed with the help of Sean Young, a youth pastor at Grace Church in Nelson, who was in the NZ Police for 15 years before moving to a ministry role.

Or please feel free to chat with the CCCNZ National Administrator Danielle Diprose: email@example.com
