Pakenham Lakeside Church has zero tolerance for any form of child abuse.

The volunteers who work with our children (for example, in our Kids4Christ ministry during sermons each fortnight) have valid Working With Children Checks. We train people in child safety through the nationally recognised ‘Childsafe’ program.

We work hard to ensure physical, emotional and spiritual safety for the children and adults connected with our care. If you see something that you think is potentially dangerous or harmful, please contact us and let us know.

In addition, we follow the Lutheran Church of Australia’s Professional Standards policies and procedures for all people we come into contact with.

If you believe that you, or someone you know, has been abused or harassed by someone connected to our church, please follow this link for details on how to report this.
