Sexual abuse by people in positions of trust has a destructive impact on the lives of many people. Such abuse is totally unacceptable to the church and to society as a whole. Those who hold positions of trust in the church are called to guard with great care the trust placed in them.
The Lutheran Church of Australia (LCA) takes very seriously its responsibility to ensure that all people who interact with the church are assured of a 'safe place', free from any form of sexual harassment or abuse. You can read more about the the LCA's Safe Place policy and plan of action on their web site (this will open in a new window).
The LCA has a confidential service for responding to complaints of sexual abuse/ harassment by church employees. Trained advisers are available to help.
