WEEK 6 - Belonging at the Table


WEEK 2 - Belonging to Each Other


The topic and experience of church can be painful for a number of reasons. The following resources may be useful to you:

Everyone deserves to feel safe. While we should approach interpersonal hurt with humility, abuse in the church community should not be tolerated. The ministry staff are committed to cultivating safety within the St James community.

If you have serious concerns about the behaviour of a staff member, call the Sydney Anglican Professional Standards Unit on 9265 1604.
