We are a safe church community
At Lindisfarne Anglican, we're committed to providing a safe place for everyone who participates in our activities. One key way we do this is by screening and training our volunteers to ensure our programs and our people are safe.
There are a range of opportunities for you to serve with us and we can wait to have you join our volunteer team and help us continue to be a church for Lindisfarne, making disciples of Jesus.
Step One - Talk to us
If you've already filled this out and someone from church has gotten back to you, you should know which of the steps below you need to undertake in order to start serving. If you're confused please contact us.
Step Two - State Government Screening
The government requires that anyone working with children or vulnerable people go through their own system of checks. As a church we require most volunteers to have this card.
Step Three - Anglican Application
Certain roles at church require more screening and training. We do this in order to be a safe place for people of all ages and stages. This process runs through our parent body, The Anglican Church in Tasmania.
To learn more about the important role of volunteers in the Anglican Church in Tasmania click here. This is helpful to read prior to filling out the form and should answer most of the questions you may have.
When you're ready click the button below to fill out your Anglican Volunteer Application form (know as a Safe Ministry Check Questionaire).
*Note: The form may take a few moments to load.
Step Four - Training
Every volunteer is required to agree to Faithfulness in Service and attend a Faithfulness in Service training event. We'll let you know when the next one of them is available. You should read and familiarise yourself with the Faithfulness in Service Code of Conduct.
If you're working with children you'll be required to undergo some training on the Safety Management Online portal.
Renewing your Volunteer status
Every 3 years you're required to renew your accreditation as a volunteer and will have to re-complete the Anglican Application Form and refresh the training packages.
The government renews your WWVP card every 5 years and will be in touch with you to renew that before it expires.
Confused about the process? Got a concern you want to talk through? Having technological issues? Let us know and we'll be happy to step you through the process and help you get through.
