Face To Face Training

Sydney Anglican Diocese Training

This training has been written for leaders serving in Anglican churches in the Sydney Diocese. It is important to note that any reference to policies, ordinances, codes of conduct and certain leadership roles as well as government legislation and legal requirements are specific to these Anglican churches.

Leaders from other churches may also benefit from, and are welcome to undertake this training. While much of the information and guidelines contained in the courses will be relevant in other churches, leaders who are not in a Sydney Anglican church should ensure they identify their own church/denomination’s applicable policies, codes and leadership roles as well as specific state laws at the relevant points in the training.

The Courses:


$ 50
  • Up to 4.5 hours
  • For those doing Safe Ministry Training for the first time*
  • $60 for other denominations


$ 25
  • Takes up to 2.5 hours
  • For those who have done Essentials and need to refresh their training
  • $30 for other denominations

The cost covers training, resources and refreshments on the day (lunch is not provided).

The Professional Standards Unit is committed to seeing every church receive the training they need. 
Please contact us if the cost of training is prohibitive.
