CGC Minor Protection Policy
Common Ground Church
October 12, 2017
We believe that children and high-schoolers belong primarily to God and therefore need to be nurtured, protected, and valued at all times, irrespective of their race, culture, physical or mental ability, or socioeconomic status. Therefore, we take the safety and well-being of every young person very seriously.
This document has been formulated with the purpose of protecting both the children in our programs and the people who work with them. This document has taken into account similar documents and practices from other churches in South Africa and abroad. It is furthermore compliant with The Children’s Act and seeks what is in the child’s best interest.
